Tell us a bit about your findings on Coronavirus?
The virus is like many others but the transmissibility is what makes it so virulent. The spread is the greater concern when compared to other viruses. There are worse viruses that can wreck the human system faster but are not easily transmissible like the Corona virus.
Why do you say people need more Education than Medication?
As we speak, there is no nation in the world who can sufficiently provide the needed healthcare should 2% of their population go down with this virus. Testing is critically low not only in Nigeria but in every nation where the virus has infected.
WHO in one of the 6 point global responses to this virus is advocating for increased testing facilities and kits but they are not things that can be manufactured in their billions over night.
So most people will have to rely on symptoms. Which is where education comes in. Nigeria as at last week (26 March,2020) only tested 252 persons.
