Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire has warns Nigerians not to acquire or search for used cloth popularly known as Okrika during this period of coronavirus.
Dr Ehanire said on Wednesday during the inauguration ceremony that took place at the State House, Abuja
“We warn all Africans not to acquire or search for used clothing during this period and also during the period to come, because in most European cities which are currently experiencing the spread of the Corona virus are getting rid of clothes of infected patients both dead and alive most especially in homes where people have been infected with the virus.
“Many of those who care about exporting these clothes do not care about the health of others and they now collect them with the intent to sell them to Africans who buy and import them to Africa.
“It would be better now and for your safety and that of your children to avoid the use of newly acquired used clothing.”
