I’m sure there is now a general awareness of the second strain of the covid-19. These new variants of the virus are present in countries like Denmark, Australia, France Italy and the UK.
This variant unlike the one that dominated the first wave of the virus is a lot more deadlier, hence the need to be more careful and take preventive measure seriously.
And as a way to prevent the spread of the new strain of the virus, other countries have banned flights coming from these affected countries.
This new strain is now present in Africa as there have been several reports to confirm the mutation of this virus in South Africa.
But for some reason, Nigeria is still receiving flights from some of these affected countries like the United Kingdom. More like they are waiting for this new variant to come in before they strengthen preventive measures which mirrors what happened in the first place.
How precise can the actions of the government be described towards this? Mind you, the vaccine is still yet to arrive in Nigeria and it has been rumored to cost billions.
Will we eventually be at the mercy of the Europeans if the deadlier variant of the virus takes its toll and leaves us at their mercy?
