The coronavirus pandemic emerged in Lagos state with its first case confirmed on February 27, 2020. The discovery initiated a frenzy of misinformation and the NCDC and Federal Ministry of Health has worked hard to allay citizens’ fears and contain the outbreak. It is important that we all play a role in beating the virus by sharing only validated information and promoting effective and proven preventive measures.
The Nigeria Coronavirus CivActs Campaign (CCC) gathers rumours, concerns and questions from communities across the country to eliminate information gaps between the government, media, NGOs and citizens. By providing the public with facts, the CCC ensures a better understanding of needs regarding the coronavirus and debunks rumours before they can do more harm.
