  1. It is really sad doctors in Africa are the highest casualties of coronavirus bcos they don’t have proper protective equipment. In Senegale alone, 10 doctor friends of mine died of this man made evil. Pls leaders should do something on time

  2. May the soul of the departed Doctor rest in peace.
    This virus is real and some of our people still don’t believe it. Let us just obey the government and get rid of it than to allow it to spread and finish us (God forbid).
    We should not let it degenerate like that of UK and US..
    May the love and grace of God for Nigeria continues.
