Nsukka Market is on lockdown in a bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus outbreak. The park, usually a beehive of activities 24 hours of the day was a shadow of itself, devoid of any human activity, save for a few pedestrians strolling on the highway. Everything else, grinding traffic jam, noisy roadside traders, unorganized market and stalls, discourteous drivers and area boys, were completely absent.

Speaking with OCOTV, Micheal said: ‚ÄúThis is not the way to curtail the spread of the pandemic disease but we have to obey the government just for their own selfish interest as way of punishing the citizens of this country because there are people out there who live below the normal income rate per day”.


For now, the best and most efficient way to avoid getting infected is through regular hygienic and sanitary practices as well as social distancing. As individuals, we remain the greatest weapon to fight this pandemic. By washing our hands regularly with clean water and soap, disinfecting frequently used surfaces and areas, coughing into a tissue or elbow and strictly adhering to infection prevention control measures in health facilities, we can contain this virus.
