Nigeria relaxed the lockdown imposed in some parts of the country due to COVID-19 on Saturday, May 2nd. The question that most people are or should be asking is whether that was done too soon seeing that the number of cases recorded daily in the country is still on the increase.
The USA has started relaxing its lockdown because the numbers of cases are reducing. Is it right for us to follow the US when our own case is different? The charts below (courtesy of www.worldometers.info) which show the daily recorded cases (and 7-days moving averages) in Nigeria and the USA clearly show that the US is trending downwards.
