Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Oluwaseun Ayodeji Osowobi, a coronavirus survivor, shared a powerful message on the disease in a short video by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
In the short clip, the Covid-19 survivor told people that being negative does not give them the right to stigmatise those that are positive for the virus.
She said that when she tested positive, it was quite a shock and she had to struggle to accept her reality.
Oluwaseun added that despite the fact there is so much information on how to protect oneself, nothing quite prepares one for the emotional hit when one's test comes back positive.
She assured anyone who is admitted at one the isolation centres for coronavirus that they are getting the best of care. She said that if she could survive, they too can.
In other news, a round of treatment of Covid-19 using remdesivir, a Gilead Sciences Inc’s newly approved medicine is $4,500 (N1,758,060) according to analysts at Piper Sandler.
It was gathered that the price is the maximum payment the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review asked for a 10-day treatment of the new drug.
The company behind the new medicine has, however, not said anything about its pricing for the coronavirus drug which got approval from US regulators on Friday, May 1.
A Piper Sandler’s analyst, Tyler Van Buren, said that paying $4,500 (N1,758,060) for saving a life “seems really reasonable".

It should be noted that Gilead Sciences Inc. had promised to give out the first 1.5 million vials of the drug.
Despite that, the company can generate more than $2 billion (N781,360,000,000) in sales at the end of 2020 going by that price tag.
Van Buren said that he does not think the company will disclose its pricing before they have donated the sum.
He added that “several billion in sales are easily achievable” looking at how more Covid-19 patients could be hospitalized in the nearest future.
