Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that a Nigerian woman with the Twitter name Chychy Chukwu was using Twitter as an outlet to document her struggles with coronavirus symptoms.
It was reported that in her tweet on Monday, May 4, she spoke about how the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) moved her to their isolation centre.
She said that though her samples were taken, she really hopes they come back negative for the virus. The Nigerian woman added that the pain she feels was terrible, saying she cannot breathe and wants to end her life.
In another report, the Israel Institute for Biological Research has created a novel disinfectant that kills 100% of bacteria and virus, including coronavirus.
The chairman of Tera Novel, the company behind the product, Keren Hazon, said the disinfectant works differently from thousands of others out there.
Keren said that the cleaning agent can be used on walls, ceilings, floors, airport bathrooms, and other surfaces.
The product was first tested in Israeli’s Covid-19 most hit town, Bnei Brak, where many reportedly died.
The technology used in making the cleaner was initially developed for use in the country’s security forces before it was transferred to the US Army.
