It’s high time we put somethings in place before the dreaded pandemic ravaged our land. There is no denying that the global pandemic as its origin from China, and since the Chinese as tried in curbing the spread of the disease to the sparsest minimum in their country that was what inculcated Nigerian government to seek for there assistance.

In anything, we do we have to learn from every decision we make how it affect us. Prior to the coming of the Chinese, the pandemic was very minimal in Nigeria but when they came in the numbers of the carriers skyrocketed and according to the previous idea we employed in tackling the disease we were happy that we are progressing but at this moment are we still making that progress?COV1D-19 TESTING KITS:Nigeria May Hit Over 10,000 Cases Soon If The Chinese Testing Kits Are Properly Checked - images 30 - COV1D-19 TESTING KITS:Nigeria May Hit Over 10,000 Cases Soon If The Chinese Testing Kits Are Properly Checked

I could remember vividly, that our beginning in curbing the spread of the pandemic was yielding good result even numerous Nigerians who returned from trips lauded the efforts of Nigerian authorities given that no other country in Europe or America has any such processes at their airports.

There was thorough checking for people coming into Nigeria and it was through the processes that the first case was detected in Lagos State. Nigeria could have been totally free from the pandemic because it was so obvious that the federal government and Lagos state governor really committed themselves to stop it.

Then all the people coming in were subjected to strict screening and other procedures put were in place by the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) only the problem we experienced was that their statuses were not detected on arrival because they were asymptomatic those moments. During the period a lady arrived on BA 075 on March 13, had the integrity to self-isolate herself, but we were unable to identify those who were infected on that flight and others that keep coming in from countries battling with the disease may be infected and gone to meet their families and friends.COV1D-19 TESTING KITS:Nigeria May Hit Over 10,000 Cases Soon If The Chinese Testing Kits Are Properly Checked - download 19 - COV1D-19 TESTING KITS:Nigeria May Hit Over 10,000 Cases Soon If The Chinese Testing Kits Are Properly Checked

And then, the process of contact tracing has proved to be herculean. Also attempt to trace passengers on the February 25 Turkish Airlines that brought in Italian, who became Nigeria’s first case manifested that some of these people disappeared without a trace. This is why the federal government resolved to do everything to avoid the spread of coronavirus in Nigeria. Given the rapidity with which it is spreading, an escalation of cases would be an untold disaster that Nigeria and its weak health system would be unable to cope with.

At last, we adopted the idea of inviting in World Health expert, but ever since they arrived on the 9th of April which positive result have we recorded? At least prior to their coming Nigeria had 276 cases, now we already had close to 3000 cases with almost a hundred deaths. Which means the idea of inviting the world health expert is not yielding any positive result, the most important of all things presently is that there is an escalated rumour that the Chinese testing kits are contaminated, that was why many countries rejected their services.

According to a white man whose video went viral on social media he insinuated that soon a door to door test will start in South Africa that people should not release themselves for the test because the malfunctions settings of the testing kits will prove them positive.

This is the area I want the Nigeria government to please put the Chinese imported kits on the test, because the white man who spoke on the internet may be right, how come we continue to record many more numbers of cases on a daily basis? In Lagos state and especially kano, we all need to work on this in time because if we jettisoned this opinion, soon we may record over ten thousand cases.
