Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a new data by the United Nations has said that the ongoing Covid-19 lockdown could lead to about seven million pregnancies in the coming months and lead to big disruptions in health care services.
The UN Population Fund and partners said that the number of women who are unable to access family planning or facing unplanned pregnancies and confronting domestic violence could greatly increase in millions.
The same release said that 47 million women may not be able to access contraceptives should the Covid-19 lockdown go on for straight six months.
“This new data shows the catastrophic impact that COVID-19 could soon have on women and girls globally.
“The pandemic is deepening inequalities and millions more women and girls now risk losing the ability to plan their families and protect their bodies and their health,” Dr Natalia Kanem, UNFPA executive director said.
The data added that there are around 450 million women in 114 countries who use contraceptives as it said that the lockdown has slowed the fight against female gen*tal mutilation with experts saying millions of avoidable FGM could happen.
It said that 13 million child marriages could also happen. As a response to those gloomy likelihoods, the organization is working on strengthening the health system and service delivery.

A Nigerian woman with the name Lucy Isaiah and a fashion designer said that she has not been able to do anything since the lockdown restriction and that has stopped her from sending her mom money.
She added that she used to send her brothers some cash whenever they were in need of support, but all that is no longer possible.
"The Covid-19 pandemic has actually affected a lot of my work. As a designer, I sell in the market, I cannot do that at the moment," she said.
