The infection is still near. Despite the fact that it is by all accounts less dangerous and irresistible in the nation.

Adakole said that proof has indicated that most of Nigerians are powerless, including, “fundamentally, we ought not be found napping.
“The first wave needs to end. And in order to say one wave has ended, the virus would have to be brought under control with zero cases.
“In some parts of the world, we’ve seen that happening, while we also seen record numbers in new infections elsewhere”.
“In any case, which scenario is more probable depends on decisions by Nigerians and how the Presidential Task Force is prepared in the next three months.
This is crucial in the fight against a second wave of infections in the country,” he said.
