However, Nigerians are giving diverse reactions about this latest update, some people believe that Nigeria Government allows people to return to Nigeria with the virus before they could do the needful.
One Ifeoma disclosed that ” Isn’t it so shameful that almost all d cases are returning travellers. If this virus started from Africa(Nigeria), do u think the whites would have granted us access to their Country? See how we are recording cases as tho we have the right treatment plan to contain the virus.”
Another one which caught our attention wrote: “It’s safe to say, thousands are already infected with the virus because we ain’t testing enough. The cases we’ve been able to capture so far are majorly those who recently returned and can easily be tracked. What about those that had it via contact with infected person’s?:
One Dan Arewa wrote: “I was in Abuja and feel unsafe, I had to move down to Jalingo to be safer and now as I am speaking to you I am in my village… my room that I haven’t arrange for years is being arranged and decorated more!! I JUST WANT TO BREATH, I don’t want the luxuries anymore”
