Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian man with the Twitter name Oluwatimilehin narrated his experience as a coronavirus survivor.
He said coronavirus is indeed big as he appealed to the general public not to take it lightly, asking them to abide by all the protective measures.
Oluwatimilehin said that though he was asymptomatic all through, not many who were admitted were lucky.
He said that he has had to face the stigma regarding his health status, a thing he said he expected to happen.
The Covid-19 survivor, therefore, appreciated all the health officials, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, and the government for how they have handled the pandemic so far.
The Nigerian asked people not to put themselves at unnecessary risk in order not to overburden those who are at the frontline, ensuring everything is okay.
