    Please, the Nigerian govt should have a re-think about the idea of isolating and closing of markets in the state. How can we successfully fight covid-19 if we run in to hiding places, only to meet hunger/famines to battle couple with sudden higher increase in the price of goods in the land.

    We are primates with the highest sense of reasonings so, corona virus ought to run from us and not we running from it.

    How do we get those food supplements that can boost antibodies fight against the disease, when markets are shut down? People should be well informed on how to raffle the it before and when it gets to him,its easy. He who fights and run, lives to fight another day. That is, if hunger will permit.
