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.

Coronavirus Outbreak Map

The Coronavirus is ravaging the world and the team at StatiSense would put up a map on Twitter showing nations where the virus has been confirmed.

I decided to take a different tack when I created the map from theirs.

I put China in the middle and made the rest of the map interactive. You can check out the map below by placing your mouse on it or tapping it if you are on a mobile device.


The above map is an example of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). After satisfying my intellectual curiosity that I can create it, I won’t be updating the map

These are scary times to be alive. I have no wish to cause more despair.
