*Remain clam?Didnt Italy remain calm?Please do not remain calm..start stocking food,get your hand sanitizers,wash your hands and know when to get your kids out of school.
if you are a CEO start making plans to shut down...
This is not a matter for remaining calm

    2. They should go and quarantine Davido and his crew plus all the so called marlians that visited him when he came back from his tour days ago. This is becoming serious, our government is just too slow.

    2. Lies!!!! There's NO Coronavirus in Nigeria. You people don't have a thinking faculty. Someone on twitter just alleged that her uncle went to LUTH and asked to be tested of the virus and LUTH said he should pay N1.2m, so what does this tell you? Una never know the kind of country una dey so and the kind of leaders una get.

    3. But the health minister assistant said it's free. She was interviewed on TVC - Your view program via phone call and she confirmed non payment to test.

    4. Thank God the same China has finally produced a drug that can cure the virus in four days. I hope it was not man made?

    5. Well anonymous 13:14, one corper who tested positive just passed away in Afe Babalola University, Ekiti State this morning. Learnt she came in from the UK to camp. Medical workers of the institution have been isolated.

      And yes, the Government is not being sincere with the numbers.

    6. @ OMA, I mentioned this on the 3rd confirmed case thread yesterday and someone told me not to speculate. I just shook my head. Lies! all from the Government. The disappointing thing is the lies about the non-existent level of preparation....if you know people in the medical field ask them...it's an on-going discussion on their different forums. This too shall pass in Jesus Name...

  3. I doubt if this government ever care about her people. Shut down / ban incoming flights to the country from affected country! I don’t know how long it will take them to do the right thing! We don’t have what it takes to battle this and yet we are so slow with doing the right thing! I’m tired! Smh

    1. The travel ban is a very heavy decision to make as there are so many things to consider e.g. if we ban all flights and we direly need medical supplies, how do we go about it?

  4. If only people can just sit their ass at one place and self isolate for the time being..

    1. Exactly Perxian.

      And people should stop pointing fingers and do their bit. Stella, Germany has what numbers again? You named Italy but not Germany. I know it's because you care but very few people can be rational under pressure.

      I love you Stella, but please stop pressing the panic button. Remember, not every BV is literate.

  5. This is Nigeria, there are always events and outings. Especially in Lagos, someone is always celebrating something even if it’s ‘unimportant’.

    Clubs will be jam packed on Friday.

    Churches will be filled with humans who do not believe they can worship their creator in the comfort of their homes.

    Events MUST be attended.

    Apostle Suleiman will celebrate his birthday on March 22nd and ‘dignitaries’ will attend.

    Clothes have been sewn, shoes have been bought. Partee after partee.

    The party continues, the virus spreads.

    It has begun!!!

    2. Weddings are being postponed

      Schools inter house sports cancelled

      Schools starting exams earlier than scheduled.

      God is on the throne. His tender mercies and living kindness will work in our favour. Amen.

      That's the only help Nigerian has to rely on.

    3. Schools are thinking of starting exams earlier in this life-threatening situation?
      Sometimes, the way our people reason leaves much to be desired!

  6. Until this become uncontrollable, the govt won't do anything. We should keep calm when numbers of infected people keep increasing everyday abi? They better swing into action and do the needful before it becomes major outbreak withing Nigeria.

  7. Stop flights going out and coming in, they won't hear. Unserious people.

  8. This is terrifying but then again, this virus has an even lower death rate than Lassa Fever that still clings to us like a friendship bracelet. Over 80,000 cases has recovered. The world media is doing us a disservice by sensationalised panic-reporting of cases but completely ignoring the reporting of recovered cases. If anything is worse than this virus, it is the induced panic that pictures it as a death sentence. Please avoid public engagements until everyone who these people have had an encounter with are quarantined and declared healthy. And do stock up on food because Nigeria is best example for demand-push inflation. God be with us, if it's His will to be.

  12. Everyone should keep calm. Very soon hysteria will breakout, unnecessary shopping will begin. Everyone should just sit down at home and chill. If you don't have to go to work and you're not dieing, sit at home!!!
    The best thing to do is maintain good hygiene, keep calm and pray

    4. Egungun is a masquerade. If it enters expressway with its mask, it won't see an oncoming vehicle, an accident will happen and it will die.

      Do you understand now?

    5. Thank you for explaining but please how is it relevant to corona virus?

    6. The call to close borders and place a travel ban on people coming in from affected countries has been on but No,
      The Nigerian govt, refused to take heed until today
      The index case from Italy did not send an alarm to our reactive govt to be proactive at least for once.

      Reported Cases have reached 5,as at today

      What about those these five persons have made contact with who may be currently asymptomatic?

      Are you aware that resident doctors have gone on strike?

      Lemme break it down, Egungun in this case is our almost blind and deaf government dancing towards the express road

      The express road in this case is the possible collapse of the health Care system in Nigeria as a result of being overwhelmed by number of cases
      Note, South Africa currently has a record of 100 cases.

      So tell me if this saying is not apt considering what's going on now in Nigeria

      God help us all

  14. We should calm down, from one case to give, and I sure know is more than five, and we should still calm down. What a government. So so careless with carefree attitude.

  15. God should just help us... This is so Scary

  16. If they 5 then its 50.

  17. My take is that all these are becoming panicky, people should calm down and take the necessary precautions and leave the rest to God. I don't give in to all these panics.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The government did not say don't take action. The government is said keep calm WHILE taking action. You people said it was a scam before, now you say that the cases are more than 5. How do you know? STELLA it is important for people to keep calm because mass hysteria will worsen an already dicey situation. Take every action you can to protect yourself and your loved ones, but for God's sake do it calmly.

  19. @Stella... Hysteria and the promotion of hysteria does not solve anything. No one is happy at the government's lack luster approach but instigating a panic is not the way to go and quite irresponsible. Personal responsibility to our personal care and appropriate information is what should be encouraged.

  20. May God help us.... I’m so scared

  21. Stella, please post my comments oh. The actual confirmed cases is over 50, the government is trying to manage the situation codedly and not create panic.

  24. Zimbabwean president addressed their Nation today and declared national emergency without a single case there but here we are... Buhari is the most ineptitude president I have even seen

  25. They should not ban flights again o. Let people be coming and going out of Nigeria once they point that white plastic pistol they call thermometer at their forehead at the airports. Some countries have run out of test kits since last week but our government act like they have a full warehouse in the six geo-political zones. No problem. We will count scores after. Government vs Citizens. Shebi they are allergic to common sense ni. *very long hiss*

  28. Our Government are our biggest problem! They had all the time to prevent this virus from entering Nigeria by banning international flights early enough as a preventive measure, but because of there selfish reasons they didn’t knowing fully well the state of our health sector. Imagine Chad just did what they were supposed to do by banning all flights into there country and closing there borders. Instead of them to shut down schools, churches, infact shut down the country immediately to prevent the spread of this virus, they are there waiting till it starts killing people. Only we can help ourselves in this situation, parents pull ur children from school, avoid gatherings, try staying indoors and maintain proper hygiene as adviced by WHO

  29. Buhari prayers finally answered to have corona virus in Nigeria !! Now he can get the much needed money fro UN, God has a shocker for you and your cabals..

  30. The virus is man made and Nigerians should test all Nigerians coming in from any country! Good news, China DID not make any new med. Due to what I do in this place, though we have a moron as head, billionaires $ millionaires with survival instinct have figured out treatment and believe me or not it’s Chloroquine, yes. The same one common in Nigeria as COVID 19 has been found to be responsive to it and it’s been known to have antiviral properties here. The research they based their protocol & that of S Korea that has succeeded in “ flattening the curve” is based on chloroquine and it’s analog Hydroxychloroquine Or 3 HIV meds Not both. Those meds have disappeared from here in a day of people spreading the Stanford University/South Korea scientists/CDC & Chinese findings. Send Chloroquine to your relatives. Most of us have been like ATMs here but it’s time to show them you care. I’m thankful I have access to it for my family and friends but it is not available, Obama is not president and this moron won’t humble himself to work with S Korea!
