People in Nigeria are less concerned with the coronavirus from another problem in this country. But some fear the true number of cases is not known. DW Facsar Fanny reports from Lagos.

I never imagined in Europe asked me to send them a hand sanitizer from Nigeria. But it is not normal today

In West Africa, an area where people already face security and infrastructure challenges, people watching can not believe that others scramble toilet paper in parts of the world considered to be much better .: Europe, USA ,

But there was no panic in Nigeria regarding COVID-19, or a coronavirus, as most of us call it. At least there was panic so far, since only a small number of cases have been confirmed in all regions. “Are we just unlucky?” people asked one another, or “just much better prepared with a lesson?”

‘We do not panic as long as it is not in our face’

As I stroll through the supermarket, I see shelves full of imported products, especially from the US: A great assortment of cornflakes , ketchup, peanut butter and chocolate

The supermarket, however, usually do not place the usual Nigeria often .. They prefer the local market.

Just a few security guards and some foreign people wearing face masks in Nigeria

to maintain a stable budget. With stock markets around the world are extremely volatile, the price of oil falls. People here seem to be less concerned about catching the virus, and more about how the economic impact will trickle down to them.

How will affect what people here will be able to pay in a few weeks or months? With about half of Nigeria’s population of approximately 200 million live in extreme poverty, most people will not have money to stock up on food. And those who can not buy more than usual yet.

“We do not panic as long as the virus is not in our face,” said Ugonna Ajoku, one of the customers I met at the supermarket. “I get information only from the news and what the news says, we are relaxed, we only had two cases, but we are taking precautions … Washing hands eg”

Nigeria shortage millions basics

With only five laboratories currently available to diagnose Covid-19 in the country this size, the Nigerian government has vowed to invest in prevention measures.

The major newspapers in Lagos do not have coronavirus in headline their main, but not the death toll from the explosion in Lagos

After my colleague and I arrived from our duty recently in Togo in Lagos airport, we were only given a questionnaire about symptoms possibly before we get through customs. “Anyone can say anything on it,” one of the newcomers said in line waiting for rapid screening on entry.

‘We welcome the refugees of Europe’

As we drive through the Lagos to the DW studio, we change the radio on. coronavirus is not on the news, nor is the main headline in the newspaper. People are worried about the violent inter-ethnic and inter-religious out of control in the northern part of the country -. About jihad and bandit attacks

The virus seems to be still far away. People here are in a stage of Europe to be around the end of February; joke has largely dominated the conversation. One of the “joke” I hear today between Nigeria is about to turn the tide: “Corona will not come to us, but if Europe wants to come, we will welcome them as refugees, we will not send them away ..”
