The Coronavirus outbreak confirmed in Nigeria has seen a spike in recent times, and we can only be hopeful that while it is unfortunate, it means that the rate and validity of the testing has gotten faster and better.

Lagos, Abuja and Ogun are still on Federal-mandated lockdowns, with some other states on selective lockdown and citizens are practicing social distancing.

As at 11:00 am on the 3rd of April 2020, the current statistics from the Nigeria Center for Disease Control were; 190 confirmed cases (nationwide), 20 discharged patients (tested negative after isolation and treatment), and 2 deaths.

We urge Nigerians to maintain the directives from the National body and the WHO.

Stay indoors and keep a safe distance from anyone who may be showing symptoms, or recently returned from any foreign country.

Wash your hands regularly.

Disinfect surfaces.

Avoid large gatherings.
