Nigeria 'Too Fragile' for Second Wave of Covid-19 - Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said the country must do all it can to "avert a second wave of Covid-19 because the economy is too fragile to bear another lockdown". In a tweet, Buhari urged Nigerians to continue adhering to the Covid-19 protocols, to avoid a resurgence of infections. The pandemic has infected 62,224 Nigerians, with a reported 1,135 deaths. In August 2020, Nigeria's economy witnessed it's biggest decline in 10 years since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic that has the world in its grip since March 2020.
