A Non-Government Organisation has joined in cushioning the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on widows and the elderly by giving them free food.
The NGO identified as Northern Peer Initiative (NPI) said it is committed to ensuring that nobody goes hungry during the pandemic.
It wrote on its LinkedIn page: "The aim of our Ramadan feeding program has always been to feed as much vulnerable kids as we can but during this pandemic we have decided to also touch the lives of widows and old people by giving them raw food in this trying time."
The organisation said it has been able to cover 30 households.
In other news, a nurse based in the United States has said she and other Nigerians living in the North American country do not believe that coronavirus back home is real.
The nurse identified as Yetunde Ifelowo said Nigeria's population is just like New York, adding that Nigeria would have had more cases than the United States if the virus is real back home.
She said the United States is more equipped than Nigeria, adding that the latter does not have a functioning hospital that could admit patients.
Speaking about cases being reported in Nigeria, she said: "Who is really taking care of these people? Who are the nurses? Which hospital were they in? How many days were they in the hospital?
"So to me and some other Nigerians, we do not believe that Nigeria has the case. I think because of the herbs and home remedies that we are taking, I think it really helps. And this very virus doesn't survive under heat - so maybe that could be an advantage."
