Covid Diary

The Covid Diary category houses random conversations, narratives, and experiences on how people are coping amid COVID-19. Although COVID-19 first presented in Wuhan, China, a town of about 11 million people, today, it is a global pandemic. Cases of COVID-19 have occured in about 200 countries and about a million people have died from the virus. COVID-19 cases are also present in Nigeria and Rivers State. The World Health Organisation on the 11th of February 2020, designated this pandemic, COVID-19. This title is a combination of the strain of the virus, that is, coronavirus and its year of origin – 2019. Governments around the world have instituted social distancing and lockdown protocols in response to the novel nature of COVID-19. Although this is not a lasting solution to the problem, Social Distancing has proved effective for curbing the spread of the virus. The flattening of the coronavirus curve is particularly crucial for preventing pressure on pre-existing health infrastructures around the world. This is why people all over the world have been confined to their homes, bringing about a “new normal”. The Covid diary category captures how people are coping amid this new challenge. The personalised nature of the stories in this category explains its diary label.
