Record Covid-19 cases reported for a single day   


Sep 13 (Lagos) - Almost 308,000 new cases of Covid-19 were reported yesterday according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). India, USA and Brazil reported most of those cases. 


More than 900,000 people have died because of the pandemic that originated in Wuhan, China. WHO experts will travel to China to work together with their Chinese counterparts to prepare scientific plans for identifying the zoonotic source of the SARS-COV-2 virus. 


European nations are undergoing a second wave with cases rising sharply in England, France and Germany.


Israel is re-imposing lock down to arrest the re-spreading of the virus. Australian cities are already under lock down with strict rules. 


Canada re-opened its schools last Friday and is also reported higher cases in its major provinces of Ontario and Quebec. 


Nigeria has reported 56,711 cases and 1078 deaths so far. With new waves affecting nations around the world, it is very important to keep following the safety protocols very strictly. Low testing can lead to leniency among people so we have to be determined. Nigeria is top 3 (PHOTO COMPARISON) in Africa but far behind South Africa in number of cases and ability to test people for the virus. It is a shame for us to be behind South Africa in healthcare but decades of corruption and mismanagement has left Nigeria's healthcare system broken and abused.
