Dr Tomi Coker, Ogun State commissioner for health, has warned mothers to desist from giving their children sanitizers to drink.
It was reported that some mothers have formed the habit of giving their wards sanitizers to drink, because they were told it helps to prevent Coronavirus infection.
Addressing mothers at a press briefing on Tuesday, Coker said:
“We also want to address some myths in society. There are mothers that are actually giving their children sanitisers to drink. There is no evidence that giving sanitisers to children will prevent COVID-19. So, we encourage people to cease from doing this,” she said.
