Nigeria and Africa as a whole have suffered minimally from the first, second and so-called third waves of the Covid epidemic. Currently death rates in Nigeria are in single digits.
Since the epidemic started in December of 2019, Nigeria with a population of over 250 million, has recorded a total of 2260 deaths.
The continent has been given millions of doses of the worst-performing vaccine, the AstraZeneca vaccine which scores less than 70% protection against most strains.
The AstraZeneca, AZ vaccine also unlike other vaccines in Europe inserts the wild-type, unmodified covid spike protein into candidates. J&J, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines utilize a modified spike protein code which stops it from entering the cell.
