The situation with COVID-19 is still rapidly unfolding globally, with constantly shifting patterns and trends. Some East Asian nations who have been praised for being able to slow the rate of infections are now seeing a second growth stage. Adam Kucharski explained that some outbreaks can behave this way, and the image below is from his new book "The Rules of Contagion" (which I am currently reading).
Whatever politics might be going on with information just has to stop. Before now, NCDC shared particular details about cases like if it was a new independent case or from already confirmed cases. This has provided a factual counter narrative to misinformation out there. Now, it's a freefall... yesterday it was a man at LUTH, today it's a medical doctor in Osun whose infant child is positive and has supposedly spread it to many others including children and doctors/nurses treating the child at OAUTH. This is not the time for political PR, the relevant authorities should allow NCDC do it's job.
