Death Ratio From Covid19 And Biafra Nigeria Civil War Experience... by mancanoe: 5:55pm On May 05, 2020
Casualties and losses
Military killed: 45,000[29]–100,000[32][33] killed

2 million civilians perished during the blockade from famine[34]

Displaced: 2,000,000–4,500,000[35]

Refugees: 500,000[36]–3,000,000[citation needed]
The blockade imposed during the ensuing stalemate led to mass starvation. During the two and half years of the war, there were about 100,000 overall military casualties, while between 500,000 and 2 million Biafran civilians died of starvation.[39]

In mid-1968, images of malnourished and starving Biafran children saturated the mass media of Western countries. The plight of the starving Biafrans became a cause célèbre in foreign countries, enabling a significant rise in the funding and prominence of international non-governmental organisations (NGOs). The United Kingdom and the Soviet Union were the main supporters of the Nigerian government, while France, Israel and some other countries supported Biafra.
Today, Coronavirus is continuing its spread across the world, more than 250,000 people have lost their lives.
I believe most people now understand what Biafra went through during the war and in less than 3 decades after the war despite all their losses stood up stronger...

Oga,

While you are doing useless analysis, Northern Elders have conspired with some northern governors to deport Almajiris tested and positive for COVID-19 to Southeast and Southsouth to kill you off.

Stay there looking at maps as they perfect their killing strategy.
