COVID-19 has wreaked such damage to the world’s economy, and this is now very evident in the West. But we should not take solace in any false sense of security that nations like Nigeria are either immune to the vagaries of this plague or that we would not be as hard hit. The reason countries in the Western Hemisphere are reporting more significant numbers than developing nations is primarily due to the availability of testing and real-time information.  Ignorance is not bliss in this instance.

What is The Most Lethal Disease in The World? [OPINION]

The most *lethal* disease in human history is certainly rabies. It has a fatality rate, untreated, of 100%. You catch it, you die, unless you get vaccinated.
