Why some Nigerians don’t believe coronavirus exists

With just about fifty Covid-19 cases in Nigeria, some remain sceptical of the pandemic. They believe it does not exist or it will not affect them.

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has confirmed five new cases of coronavirus in Lagos, Rivers, and Abuja, taking the national total to 51. NCDC recorded two cases in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, two cases in Lagos and one case in Rivers state.

The NCDC, on its website and Twitter handle, said, “On the 25th of March, 2020, six new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were recorded in Nigeria. “Of the new six cases reported on March 25, two are in Lagos State, one is in Osun State, one in Rivers State, and two are in the Federal Capital Territory.
