Aisha, wife of Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari, has called on the government to shutdown activities to curtail the spread of Coronavirus in the country.

In a tweet on Monday, she said, "It is commendable that state governors have closed down schools; however, this could be counterproductive if parents are still going to work. 

"We should not isolate students and expose their parents.

"Let us remember that they will meet at home.#TotalLockDown#StayAtHome." 

Nigeria now has 36 confirmed cases of Coronavirus with one death recorded so far.
