This past week has witnessed a rise in the number of cases of the covid-19 in Nigeria. Compared to the 246 cases that were reported last week, the cases increased by 77% to 436 this week. This rise in infection rate calls for more compliance with the covid-19 preventive protocols. The commercial hub, Lagos state, still retains the highest number of infected persons followed by Delta State and the Federal Capital Territory. While previous weeks were filled with reports of scammers defrauding people with covid-19 related schemes, this week has news of people defrauding the system by breaking laid down protocols and presenting fake test results.
