The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has directed churches in Nigeria to observe Sunday 22 and 29 March, 2020 as days of prayers against the coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria and globally.
CAN in a statement issued by the President, Rev Samson Ayokunle and made available to LEADERSHIP in Abuja yesterday, advised churches to strictly follow the guidelines for combating COVID-19 in all their gatherings.
The Christian body also called on all churches in the country to pray ‘’that God should stop the spread of coronavirus in Nigeria and all over the world; protect Nigerians from this disease and heal those who have been infected already.
On the ban on the gathering of more than 50 people in a place by most state governments, it called for the use of house cell-based service or online service.
It said where possible, particularly for churches who do not have an online system, services can be broken into shifts of not more than 50 members in each shift.
“Each branch/assembly should provide alcohol-based hand rub (sanitizer) for use.
“Regular washing of hands with soap and water; use of the same towel is not allowed and maintain at least one meter three feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing,’’ it added.
