Here are some comments from Twitter:
@PriscilliaOmoba “This numbers are bad oh, the death rate is too high. What is going on?
@Elisawit 1 “We need to work on this death cases. The value is too much in percentage compared to sub-sahara Africa. We don’t have to wait to 10k death before we know the death the is too high. We acted faster than nations experiencing this type of fatal percentage. Compare with Ghana not America.”
@Gracedup 1 “Edo state is fast becoming a hot bed. @GovernorObaseki, what is going on? Is the increase in number as a result of ramped testing? What measures are you putting in place to slow down the spread?
@EmmanuelEAkey “Jurisdiction of Presidential task force is FCT, Lagos and Ogun. Nigeria governors are not in same spirit with NCDC directives.”
@Charlesogb77 “The number keeps increasing, it is heading for more as FG relaxes the lockdown. I Pray it will reduce by month end.”
