The man has been in Nigeria, since 25th of this month, and was tested 2 days later, only God knows how many people he has made contact with and those that made contact with those that made contact with him. The list would be endless with our overpopulated environment like the brt, church, mosque,etc.
I believe our government is to be blame for any death of his citizens because of the poor screening exercise in our international airport. Common sense should have told them that citizens from china, italy, south korean,(or better still any country with the case of it) should be quarantine for some while before releasing them to the public but foreigners are first class citizens and nigerians are second class citizens and so must not be subjected at first to this.
God help us, the best for now is to wear mask or better still stay indoors if you don't have anything serious doing and I hope our government don't politicize this by downplaying numbers to look good because that was the main cause of the outbreak in china.

Quarantine the man and all the people he has come in contact with. Coronavirus that China can't battle, Nigeria can't battle it either. Coronavirus shouldn't have business in Africa else we all perish

Take a deep breath people.

Do NOT let the panic get to you. Take necessary precautions, follow the directives, and go about your day-to-day activities as you normally would.
