While the whole world awaits a major break in the battle against COVID-19, it has become pertinent that deliberate efforts need to be made at keeping our focus on other infectious diseases that equally pose threats to public health and safety. It has been observed that in countries with high prevalence rates, COVID-19 is increasingly the top differential diagnosis amongst persons with fever and/or cough, irrespective of the duration. These patients are promptly taken through chest radiographs and a SARS-CoV-2 test is administered. While this heightened index of suspicion helps to mitigate the pandemic, the medical community must not lose sight of other communicable diseases in the differential diagnoses of their patients. Pneumococcal diseases, Tuberculosis, measles and other respiratory pathogens are known to present similar symptoms as COVID-19 and therefore should be suspected and also tested for, prior to the de-isolation of patients in order to minimize the risk of transmitting these other highly infectious diseases.More

If "sickness is nature's vengeance for violating her laws" then Natura eat optimus medicus (nature is the best healer)..

Nigeria struggled not to enter the year 2000 with military rule. And so, by 1999 she made frantic but successful effort to enthrone democracy. Military regime has lost its appeal in the comity of nations. It was no more the trendy method of leadership. So Nigeria can't afford to be different.
