|For Those That Think Covid-19 Is A Hoax by Nobody: 4:06am On Apr 18, 2020|
Some people still don't believe covid-19 is real, or that it is deadly. Everytime NCDC releases a statement that they have discharged some patients, some people come here and start chest beating that Nigeria should show other countries what they use in curing covid-19 patients. Well maybe u should take a look at this.
Confirmed cases 493
Death rate 3.4%
Confirmed cases 2,783
Death rate 1.8%
Confirmed cases 1,017
Death rate : 2.1%
Confirmed cases 688
Death rate: 0.9%
Confirmed cases 641
Death rate 1.2%
Confirmed cases 627
Death rate 2.9%
Confirmed cases 477
Death rate 0.6%
Confirmed cases 342
Death rate 0.6%
As shown all these African countries I mentioned are having less deaths than Nigeria. Everyone needs to take responsibility. I see a lot of people in Lagos who don't believe this disease exist. They still shake hands their normal way, they don't wash their hands or sanitize and social distancing doesn't exist in their dictionary. They live their normal life like nothing is happening. Nigeria has the largest population in Africa. If we are recoding these number of deaths when we don't have too many cases, what would happen when we start having a surge? Nobody wants this but if people don't take responsibility and do their own parts, God forbid but having a surge would be inevitable. Even with the lockdown in Lagos some places are still crowded.
Stay safe everyone.

I laugh each time I read them announcing the number of discharged.
It is now somewhat of competition amongst States where they keep trying to outdo one another in the number of discharged per day as if they'll get rewarded.
We are still treating this issue with levity while it is even yet to take off here. By the time we get to the peak the highly politicized NCDC will lose count and seize to exist because of course as everything Nigerian, it is nothing but another means to settle cronies with appointments.
May God keep protecting us.

But some people up north are busy washing there hands and drinking the water, ewww.
Other countries are preventing COVID-19, 9ja are helping it to spread.
No wonder some people are prophesying Africa will be hard hit, God forbid though.
As president Abba don wakka, maybe now they will understand say Coro no know black or white, rich or poor, religion or even jass.
Stay home, stay safe and protect your loved ones.

May God keep protecting us. Everyone needs to take responsibility. I think more people need to be educated. 51 new cases yesterday alone.

Interesting times ahead.

Examples abide on this same forum. Some will write “ malaria and typhoid “ . Supposed educated youths? This is extremely shameful to say the least.
I sincerely hope we don’t get to the stage where this pandemic gets out of control and overwhelms the country.

@mods, seun , lalasticlala. Pls our people need a wake up call. The youths needs orientation and factory reset from being careless.
Unfortunately, the careless young ones will likely survive but will infect the older ones and those with underlying health issues. We all need to be cautious.

Education has failed to cure some people of chronic ignorance. It's a pity I am sharing the same country with such people..
