“It is true that bitter kola has anti-viral properties, but I am not sure how the anti-viral properties affect coronavirus, he said

“I have also heard of garlic, lemon, palm wine and even chloroquine. We caution against the use of so many herbal drugs because science has a basis and there is a procedural process to laying claims to whatever.

Mamora advised Nigerians not to panic, stressing that people should allow themselves to be “ruled by facts, not fears”.

He said that the best prevention is to practice good personal hygiene by washing hands under running tap water with soap or ash, as well as the steady use of hand sanitisers.
