The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS has come out to hail the Lagos State Government for making provision for relief package and palliatives to students of tertiary institutions in the state.

The South-West Coordinator of NANS, Comrade Kappo Samuel Olawale praised the governor in a recent interview in Lagos.

According to him, Sanwo Olu has been doing great work since the lockdown and he is sure that with him in charge, Lagos will be free of Covid-19 very soon.

He also thanked the Governors of Ogun and Ekiti states for helping the students in their region while urging Oyo and Osun state governors to do the same.

His words, “Lagos State government in its responsiveness and care for citizens made the relief package available through the office of the Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Mr Tokunbo Wahab, to all tertiary institutions.

“The provision is a means to ensure the lockdown order is being observed fully and also to ease the hardship of youths during this period.

“We are aware of the great work being done by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in battling Covid-19 and we believe with time and the proper actions being taken, Lagos State will be free of Covid-19.

“We also want to use this medium to appreciate the Governors of Ogun and Ekiti states for their intervention in the situations confronting Nigerian students in their respective states. It is on this note that we appeal to Oyo and also Osun states to emulate the magnanimous contributions of Lagos State, Ekiti State and Ogun State to the student wing in their respective states.”

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.
