COVID-19: Nigerian Students In UK Test Positive For Coronavirus by gcey2k(m): 12:43pm On Apr 02, 2020
The four students were said to have contracted the virus while moving from one part of the UK to another to find means of survival.

Four Nigerian students in the United Kingdom have tested positive for Coronavirus.
The students are beneficiaries of the 2019 Niger Delta Development Commission Scholarship Programme.

SaharaReporters had published that the students were abandoned in the UK for eight months by the NDDC under Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Godswill Akpabio, and the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

The four students were said to have contracted the virus while moving from one part of the UK to another to find means of survival.
A colleague of the affected students, who spoke with SaharaReporters, said, “The students are currently being quarantined at one of the NHS centres in their neighbourhood.
“They have been fending for themselves and now, they have no money as they can’t go out to work.”

The identity and treatment centres of the Nigerians are kept hidden by authorities due to the Data Protection Act 2008.
The students are appealing to the Nigerian Government for immediate intervention.

The latest incident comes a few days after SaharaReporters reported the death of a Nigerian doctor in UK, Alfa Sa'adu, to Coronavirus.
The elderly man had visited a hospital as a consultant to help patients of Coronavirus when he contracted the virus and died.

Forget about UK for now, let's talk about Nigeria.

Honestly, Nigeria's governments are just being too optimistic. Coronavirus won't stop spreading in just 2 weeks. Many advanced countries have being battling this virus for months and there is no end in sight yet.

Do Nigeria's governments think that the spread of the coronavirus virus will be stopped after just 2 weeks stay at home? They only succeeded in slowing the spread and not eliminating the inevitable.

After the two weeks stay at home and the virus hasn't been curtained, will they extend it for another 2 weeks?
Will the hungry daily income earners agree to stay at home for another two weeks and go hungry with his family?
Even those that have money, will they be able to see food to buy after states have been cut away from the food supply chain?

I created a thread suggesting how the government should handle this coronavirus but it never made frontpage. While I have been seeing far less important topics making frontpage

Here is a link to the thread, my suggestion is up for debate

The government of this country is trying to curtail the spread of the deadly corona virus by making series of efforts.

The President declared total lockdown in Lagos,Ogun and FCT, but I was surprised to read again that the lockdown has been moderated.

The modifications are to allow citizens to get essential commodities from the market based on the time table designed by the government.

Are we saying people are immune to the virus within the specified periods?

Probably, FG tried to dodge your emergency responsibilities of providing palliative measures for the citizens.

The different electricity distribution companies in Nigeria are good at sharing customers bill on monthly, what stops the government from using the approach they have been using successfully?

If only FG know the multiplier effects of your decision, you will reverse your decision for the betterment of all Nigerians.

We all know our government is neither responsive not responsible! They should have come back since or stay back and fend for themselves if they think UK is better! A government that abandoned you before coro, how do you think they'll help now? Well, I guess they can fly them to one of the 'world-class' treatment centres in Nigeria undecided
