This shit is getting real, I hope when other continent are free from the virus, Africa won't just start thier own.


Lockdown, should have been the best to combat the virus, but lockdown can't and is not working, u can't lock People up without food and palliatives.

Buhari should better listened to the Governors, any attempt to continue the lockdown will be met with a stiff resistance and anarchy.

Ban interstate travel, and ensure it works.
Ban large gathering and assemblies.
Lockdown of flights
Compulsory use of face mask and cover

End lockdown, hunger is killing people

And Nigeria reported case is just 3.92% of that. And the fatality rate is 2.46%.
Globally, the percentage of reported cases in Nigeria to the global figure is 0.0388% and the fatality rate is 0.0162%

We shall overcome

From the way things are going, it seems like our last hope is vaccine. Aside that, we will keep going in circle. A country might fully contain the virus, then it will take just one person to bring in the virus into the country again... And the circle continues.

Algeria has an aged population due to their high life expectancy hence the high number of fatalities there.

Imagine Ghana having more than 2500 cases and some ignorant and educated illiterate Nigerians are saying the figure in Nigeria is bloated because they don't personally know a friend or cousin infected with COVID-19.

Over here in Nigeria, some people who are educated and should know better are of the opinion that Covid19 is a ruse. What's the rationale for this assertion you may ask? Well, they say since they don't personally know of anyone who is positive of the virus or who has gone to the great beyond as a result of the virus, then it is a ruse. Me, I pray May no one I'm associated with experience this dreadful virus. As for una wey dey want proof before una believe, may you get what you ask for

If Kano resume testing, i feel they will throne Lagos and the FG will give them the money they requested to fight Convid19. Now that NCDC kano is stop testing despite the rumors death on daily basics. God help us all. The North are not doing enough compare to what the south and east has done in these Convid19. Let them wake up before it's too late
