“I think Nigeria is really to be commended for the incredible mobilisation that it has done with its resources in order to fight against COVID-19. It is a difficult situation in every country”, NAN quoted her as saying.

The envoy noted that her country and international organisations were participating in the fight against coronavirus.

“It is a complicated job and the more we do it together, the better we would all succeed. But as I said earlier, this isn’t something that countries can’t address in isolation. It’s a virus, it doesn’t know borders and so we all have to work together,” Leonard said.
