The case in Nigeria is not totally unique but it is certainly one that interests analysts; with many still in doubt of the existence of the disease in the country. Eyebrows have been raised and arguments have been made, as well as statements by relevant agancies debunking such arguments.

However, with the existing doubts, Nigeria continues to record new cases of the virus across states of the country. In fact, new states have been enlisted among the affected areas in Nigeria. One of such states is Kogi.

The government,through the NCDC, is simply doing enough to curb the further spread of this menace. However, it calls for concern when Lagos, the epicenter of this virus, complains of running short of isolation centres.

we hope that in the coming days, we would have the antidote to this very pandemic.
