FG Alerts Nigerians On Ransomeware Disguised As A Coronavirus Watch App by valentineuwakwe(m): 3:00am On Mar 25
The Federal Government on Tuesday raised the alarm over the existence of an Android- based malicious and fraudulent coronavirus Ransomware application , which claims to provide updates on COVID- 19 and infections near the user.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a statement by his Special Assistant, Mr Segun Adeyemi , said the Ransomware blocks access to users’ personal data and accounts and threatens deletion , unless users pay $ 100 in Bitcoin within 48 hours .
He said the Ransomware App, detected on the website www. coronavirusapp. site, “ prompts users to download an Android App purportedly for coronavirus map tracking and heat map visuals .”
Mohammed said the development confirmed warnings against cyber criminals seeking to exploit the growing spread of the virus for nefarious gains.
The minister therefore called on the general public not to download the Ransomware App and to seek updates on the pandemic only from the appropriate authorities.

Oga we have heard

Meanwhile, go and hug Abba Kyari and wish him well. Better still, tell your boss to provide better health care hospitals because when the corona virus starts to sweep you all at Aso Rock, you all will be forced to travel out of the country

That visited Germany doesn't mean he contracted it there though it is more probable.

As well, the average carrier transmits the virus to an average of 2.5 people.

Who is to say Dangote didnt infect Kyari by the way?
