COVID-19 on Tuberculosis and Human Immune Deficiency Virus in Nigeria: A Menace Combination

 There has been much awareness during the past week about the catastrophe that awaits once coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) establishes itself especially in the poorest communities of Nigeria and, importantly, in informal settlements. Evidence to date suggests that COVID-19 is efficiently and have great health impacts which are dangerous to patient with HIV and Tuberculosis in Nigeria. This expose the nonchalant the health system show towards the care for patients with tuberculosis and HIV while facing COVID-19 not giving of the menace on this patients health and Well-being. Different interference information’s have been made by people which is based on inconclusive evidence for some months ago about the aftermath that awaits once the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) implements itself in the rural communities of Nigeria and more significantly the compact settlements, which have been really happening now in Nigeria in some state like Lagos, Kastina, Kano, Kaduna and so on. Today, proof of data and information’s gathered around the world indicates that Covid-19 is effectively transferred from individual or person infected through large droplets and also hard-surface. Looking at the house population per each area, toilet and tap facilities used together by many people in compact settlements or communities that their house are near one another, different implementations and actions such as washing hand always, doing social distance among one another at least 2 meter away and self-isolation for 14 days will be an herculean task to accomplish. However, the disproportionate and disorganized problem of tuberculosis and HIV have make most people suggests different aftermath that will come up with the patients with both diseases and how the health system that is weak will not be able to respond well, conditionally when Covid-19 reaches those communities, it will be more dangerous for the health system to handle.
