Nigeria has seen a rise in cases of COVID-19 as more tests are done. But the way this information is presented is important. If it’s not balanced it can lead to the spread of panic and fear. The public needs to focus instead on instructions given by leaders. These include washing hands, social distancing and abiding by lockdown rules.

In today’s episode of Pasha, Doyin Odubanjo, executive secretary at the Nigerian Academy of Science, discusses COVID-19 in Nigeria.
