The Federal Government has come out to lament the loss of over 2,000 Nigerians to the COVID19 pandemic.

The Secretary to the government of the federation, Boss Mustapha recently revealed this at the presidential Steering Committee on COVID19 town hall meeting on COVID19 vaccination for North Central Zone in Lafia, the Nasarawa State Capital, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, stakeholders should kerp mobilizing against the dreaded pandemic because the country cannot afford to lose more citizens.

Boss added that he is happy that Nigeria is yet to receive a negative report on the effect of the vaccine administered on people since the receipt ion of the Oxford AstraZanica vaccine in March this year.

His words, “We must contribute to the desired 70% to be vaccinated, not just an act of individual self-protection, but a civic duty to curtail the spread of the virus.”

“Every one of us has a role in the effort to stem the Covid-19 pandemic by being vaccinated, promoting vaccination, and observing the Covid-19 protocol of wearing a face mask, regular handwashing with soap under running water and maintaining physical distancing.”

“This point is due to emphasis because the act of vaccination does not free us yet from these precautions, which till further notice as still as relevant as on the day they were prescribed. The vaccines Nigeria in Nigeria is tested as safe. Leaders must recommend it to their families and communities as the best protection against the dreaded 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.
