Nigeria Restricts Entry from United States, United Kingdom, and 11 Other Countries

It reads like a movie script: Nigeria is restricting entry into the nation from travelers from 13 high-risk coronavirus countries. The United States and UK made that list. Also, Nigeria has recorded five new cases. This coronavirus is teaching everyone one thing: the world is really about survival and when this is over, the decisions of states will shape the rule of engagement. More so, every part of the world will start looking for the well-being of the weakest link. Yes, if Chad has a public health issue, Japan cannot just be indifferent to it because if bad things happen, everyone could be at risk.

The federal government on Wednesday announced the restrictions of entry into the country for travellers from 13 high-risk Covid-19 countries.

The countries are China, Italy, Iran, South Korea, Spain, Japan, France, Germany, United States of America, Norway, United Kingdom, Netherlands & Switzerland.

These have the highest number of confirmed Covid-19 cases across the world.

This is the newest update from the Presidential Taskforce on COVID19 which met on Tuesday.

  1. “After the coronavirus, nothing will be as before, we will have to sit down and rewrite the rules of trade and the free market”. From Italian Prime Minister on Monday.

    The truth is that globalisation isn’t all good, as the proponents would want the rest of mankind to believe. And after this nightmare, no one should expect business as usual, many things need to change.

    As for Nigeria, well, we can assume that tens of people already have the virus here, and they may never know, until the virus leaves them. Telling us about ‘new cases’ is largely to fall in line with what is happening elsewhere; the real impact will be measured on economics, not health grounds.
