Selonnes Policy Tidbits: | NCDC & FGN must urgently focus on Kano, possibly Nigeria’s next Covid-19 ground zero. 

Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) need to shift focus urgently to Kano, possibly Nigeria’s next Covid-19 ground zero and investigate the spate of unexplained deaths. On 20 March, I warned that “Not responding robustly now, will in the longer term cost Nigeria more, financially, materially, morally and certainly, in terms of human casualties” and stressed that “when COVID-19 hits Nigeria fully, the challenge and national mobilization required to respond adequately will require the replication another civil war-situation capacity.” http://selonnes.com/2020/03/20/selonnes-consult-mdceo-obaze-calls-on-fgn-to-empower-states-proactively-to-grapple-with-covid-19/. We are gradually gravitating to that moment of shock and awe. – OHO
