The Speaker, Plateau State House of Assembly, Abok Ayuba has come out to beg Muslim faithfuls to use the Eid-el-Fitir celebration to pray for the end of the coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria.

Abok revealed this in a Sallah message to Nigerian Muslims signed by his Press Secretary, Bulus Atang recently.

According to him, all citizens, irrespective of their religious beliefs must use the occasion to allow peace and unity to reign in the nation.

He added that while we all pray, we should not forget to keep observing the precautionary measures put in place by the government aimed at preventing the spread of coronavirus disease.

His words, “Pray to Almighty God to bring to an end this dreaded COVID-19 pandemic and other challenges facing the country.

β€œWhile you pray, please observe the precautionary measures put in place by government aimed at preventing the spread of Coronavirus disease.”

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.
