How are you preparing for this lockdown. I have got food stuff, filled my gas, subscribed my GOTV and also bought petrol because of epileptic power supply.

Like I read in the news, lockdown in Europe means you can't step out of your door, so what will happen when those food stuff, petrol and other essentials finish?

Also what about those that stay in ghettos that don't have the basic needs at home like water? Will they be allowed to go fetch water down the street. How are we going to keep grounded pepper for soup that will last till the lockdown is over?

So how are we going to eat? If corona virus doesn't kill us, then hunger and thirst will. Even in countries with high cases, Malls and markets are open, just that every one is on face masks and hand gloves.

Nigerians! How prepared are you for this?

1. You can eat normal, tasty, healthy foods.
stocking up on food doesn't need to be boring dry foods like rice and pasta. we'll still have power! Freeze foods so you can still make fun, delicious meals. Just because you’re stocking up doesn’t mean you have to live on nonperishable foods and vegetables. That’s going to get tiresome real quick, and there are plenty of ways to eat the things you normally would. Fill your freezer with fresh, flavorful soups. Keep pasta in your pantry and tomato sauce in your freezer. Think about the foods you would want to eat on a typical day; usually there’s a way to keep those around. Personally, I froze a big batch of tamatoes soup and a bunch of fruits, I also bought eggs, sweet potatoes, peanut butter, hummus, carrots, and a bunch of other things — normal staples for my diet that will keep for a decent length of time.

2. And remember that food isn’t just about staying alive.


3. Avoid being too isolated.
Being forced to stay inside might sound like an introvert’s dream come true, but when it’s in the midst of a worldwide epidemic and everyone is panicking, it’s not such a fun and chill time. It took me one day stuck at home to get lonely and stir-crazy.Check in with your people. Get on the phone or FaceTime and call your family and friends with some regularity — you’ll probably need it, and so will they. And if someone you know actually gets quarantined, or gets infected with the virus, be there for them as much as you (safely) can. Call them, or just send a playlist, some memes, or links. And even if you can’t go hang out with them via vidoe, consider cooking them a meal and leaving it outside their door, which is safe to do.


4. Get a little fitness in.
There are plenty of workouts you can do from the comfort of your own home, and doing so can seriously help your mental health. Here are a bunch of exercises you can do without any equipment, and YouTube has tons of channels that offer instruction in everything from yoga to Pilates to strength training and if you can still go outside, nothing beats a walk. Just avoid big groups of people.

5. Clean your home.
Not only does it protect against the spread of illness, it also makes being cooped up in your home a lot more pleasant. Here’s a big list of spring cleaning chores you may have been putting off.

6. Go online, but beware.
When the SARS epidemic broke out in 2002, Facebook, Twitter,Nairaland, Instagram and even Myspace did not yet exist. Now, people are far more digitally connected, and the ability to keep in touch over social media and video chat can have major benefits on mental health during isolation. “It shortens distances between people,” But the internet also creates issues that didn’t exist during SARS — namely, the spread of misinformation. Here’s a running list of misinformation about the coronavirus to keep on hand as you peruse social media https://www.nairaland.com/5754508/25-facts-coronavirus-share-facts. Also, be wary of those hawking fake cures online or trying to infect your computer with malware by sending you suspicious coronavirus-themed emails.

7. Plan out your entertainment.
Watch the news, for sure, but don’t just stay glued to cable news. You know all those shows and movies you’ve been meaning to watch but never get around to? Make a list — yes, an actual list — of the titles, and you’ll never run out of things to watch. But if spending too much time looking at screens is driving you nuts, shut it down.Get out a bunch of books from your library. Pull out the board games and puzzles. Have some craft supplies on hand, if that’s your thing.

8. Seek professional help if you’re really struggling.
Whether you’ve been to a therapist before or are just realizing you might need to see one, seeking help with your mental health doesn’t need to wait till you can go outside again. Lots of therapists offer sessions over the phone or video chat. Here are a bunch of tips for how to find a therapist.

9. If you’re working from home, do it right.
Working from home sounds like the dream — pajamas all day, slacking off, working from the couch! — but it can get bleak and unproductive pretty quickly if it’s not approached the right way.


10. Remember to stay healthy and practice good hygiene.
Information is power, and having the right info can be helpful in stopping yourself from freaking out. You don’t need to go overboard on research, but it’s a good idea to be aware of what you should do if you do think you’ve contracted the coronavirus. And perhaps the easiest way to stay healthy is to maintain proper hygiene. You don’t need a face mask (unless you’re sick), but you should be washing your hands regularly (and remember, soap and water is just as effective as hand sanitizer).

Once that’s done, just try to take it easy (and maybe order some dumplings to support your favorite Chinese restaurant). These are tough, uncertain times, and the best thing we all can do is be kind to ourselves and our neighbors as we all go through it.



Lagos State Food Bank in all Local Government and LCDA starting tomorrow. If you need Food Support, walk in with you face mask and gloves, you will get a Food Pack containing basic food items, and a Pack of water for the Family.

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said

"If you hear of an outbreak of plague in a land, do not enter it; but if the plague breaks out in a place while you are in it, do not leave that place."

If mankind had adhered to this advice, the whole world won't be in this mess. Yet, it is the solution adopted by everyone.

For those that are not happy that the message was from the noblest of mankind, you can do yourself a good by kissing a high tension.

Nigeria lockdown can't take effects like Western world.

The Lagos lock down so far is a sham

Like that WHO guy said; Lockdown is just a second window of opportunity to fight the corona pandemic, but that is for serious countries. Lockdown should be for a short period, where the chain is broken, contacts are traced and new infections are quickly detected. There is really no way total lockdown can work in Nigeria, no way. If it happens, only the super rich can survive the hunger virus.
If we have foodstuff in the house, what happens when the gen is faulty and we can't power the inverter and the fish and meat gets spoilt because we can't power the fridge? So many things will go wrong if the lockdown extends over a long period undecided
