Popular comedian Ayo Makun also known as AY Comedian has taken to his official Twitter handle to highlight the difference between self-quarantine and self-isolation following the novel coronavirus.
According to the humour merchant, self-quarantine could be used when a person suspects that he/she may have the virus.
However, he pointed out that self-isolation comes into play when the person has finally tested positive.
People tend to use (“self-)quarantine” and “(self-)isolation” interchangeably, but they’re different.u (self-)quarantine yself wen u suspect dat u may have d virus cos u have come in contact wit people who have tested positive 4 it.u go into (self-)isolation when u test positive
