    Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari, has said the country must do all it can to “avert a second wave of Covid-19”.

    In a tweet, he said he did not want the number of people contracting the virus in Nigeria to increase again, because the “economy is too fragile to bear another round of lockdown”.
