  1. What we regarded as lockdown before now was a child play if anything is to go by. If you have money you move freely, no check of patients to private hospitals we only hear when things went wrong. This is life issue government should wake up to their responsibility. I have not seen any seriousness in this matter, people want to make money at any slight opportunity. God help Nigeria
