A Nigerian nurse has lashed out at a Twitter user who said Coronavirus is not real and also accused the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) of padding numbers.
@AdaErema said she saw the tweet after witnessing the death of two Coronavirus patients at an intensive care unit and also seeing the corpse of two other Coronavirus patients.
We lost two patients in the ICU today to covid-19. On wheeling the corpses to the ambulance, I saw two more corpses, all covid-19 deaths. Coming to Twitter, the first post I saw was a covidiot saying NCDC was padding numbers and that covid-19 isn’t real. I’m just weak!
The nurse who however noted that the issue is that Nigerians don’t trust the government, affirmed that the number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus does not reflect the true state of COVID-19 in Nigeria as there are more cases.
So the issue here is that most Nigerians don’t trust their government and since they don’t, they don’t believe the covid-19 numbers by @NCDCgov . From me to you, covid-19 is real. The numbers you see now do not reflect the true state of covid-19 in Nigeria. We have more cases.
As we increase our testing capacity, expect more cases. Even if you don’t trust your government, please stay safe. @NCDCgov won’t gain anything from padding numbers. Help us to help you. Together, let’s flatten the curve
