It’s taken a while but at last, Lagos is on Lockdown. There was no other route to take. The pandemic would have decimated the state.

So all non-essential markets have been shut down. Only markets selling food and medicine will remain open during this period.

For a lot of entrepreneurs, this time will be especially challenging. Given the reality of living in Nigeria, it is sad to note another year of losses.

This time last year, some businesses would incur losses due to the elections. A year later, due to the Coronavirus, businesses will be taking a hit.

How people will pick up the pieces of their lives when this is over is beyond me.


“Breaking” Coronavirus in Nigeria

The first case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) was confirmed in Nigeria on the 27th of February 2020.

It was brought into the country by a man of Italian origin who returned to Nigeria from Milan, Italy.

A press release has been made by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

This blog had featured a map showing affected countries but the choice was made not to update it.

At the time, I felt that it would be unethical to do so.

Now that the Coronavirus is in Nigeria, I shall be providing daily updates.
