Bauchi state governor, Bala Mohammed has come out to speak about how the coronavirus pandemic has hindered preparations for local government elections in the state.

Governor Bala revealed this during the swearing-in ceremony of four Caretaker Chairmen for Darazo, Kirfi, Tafawa Balewa, and Ningi local government areas of the state today.

According to him, he had earlier vowed that the elections would happen, but the outbreak has made it impossible right now.

He added that the already sworn in caretaker chairmen should keep living up to their responsibilities because they were appointed to serve the people.

His words, “I had earlier promised the world that we would conduct local government elections, but that is no longer possible because of the Coronavirus pandemic that is ravaging everywhere. As soon as this pandemic is over, we will conduct elections in our local government areas.

โ€œI want to urge the already sworn in caretaker chairmen to live up to their responsibilities. You are going there to serve the people and that is what you should do, nothing else.”

Coronaviruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can be mild, such as some cases of the common cold (among other possible causes, predominantly rhinoviruses), and others that can be lethal, such as SARS, MERS, and COVID-19. Symptoms in other species vary: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory tract disease, while in cows and pigs they cause diarrhea. There are yet to be vaccines or antiviral drugs to prevent or treat human coronavirus infections.

Coronaviruses constitute the subfamily Orthocoronavirinae, in the family Coronaviridae, order Nidovirales, and realm Riboviria. They are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry. The genome size of coronaviruses ranges from approximately 27 to 34 kilobases, the largest among known RNA viruses. The name coronavirus is derived from the Latin corona, meaning “crown” or “halo”, which refers to the characteristic appearance reminiscent of a crown or a solar corona around the virions (virus particles) when viewed under two-dimensional transmission electron microscopy, due to the surface covering in club-shaped protein spikes.

Human coronaviruses were first discovered in the late 1960s. The earliest ones discovered were an infectious bronchitis virus in chickens and two in human patients with the common cold (later named human coronavirus 229E and human coronavirus OC43). Other members of this family have since been identified, including SARS-CoV in 2003, HCoV NL63 in 2004, HKU1 in 2005, MERS-CoV in 2012, and SARS-CoV-2 (formerly known as 2019-nCoV) in 2019. Most of these have involved serious respiratory tract infections.
