Media personality, Toke Makinwa has suggested that the Asian country of China should be fined by the whole world for exposing it to the dreaded coronavirus also known as COVID-19 which has claimed so many lives and caused economic stagnation across the globe.
The chatterbox radio personality took to her Twitter page on Monday to call out Chinese authorities for exposing the world to the virus stating that the world is paying dearly for their penchant for eating all kinds of wild animals.
According to her, if coronavirus had originated from Africa, the Western world including China would have closed their borders to anything coming from the continent until the disease was contained like Ebola.
Toke Makinwa wrote on Twitter; “Not to even lie I am low key mad at China, the whole world should fine them when all of this is over,.
”The whole world is paying dearly for it. Stop eating certain animals they won’t hear.
”If this outbreak started in Africa, the way they would have contained it, the way they’ll ban and close their borders to anything coming from Africa.
”It’s just unfair, people losing jobs, their lives, conspiracy or not, laboratory or market in Wuhan, this is insane.
”Everyone is feeling the craziness; a lot of people have been laid off from work, a lot of companies downsizing and restructuring, this bites, crazy times ahead,” she added.
Toke Makinwa’s reaction comes days after Nollywood star actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim, went into self-isolation after returning to Lagos from her trip to the United Kingdom last Thursday.
The thespian revealed this via several tweets on her verified page making it clear at the time that she has not displayed any coronavirus symptoms, but was taking steps as a responsible citizen.
Nse Ikpe-Etim wrote; “Hi lovelies, yesterday morning, I returned to Lagos from the UK – one of the countries listed as a COVID-19 hotspot by the Federal Ministry of Health.
“I am presently in self-isolation according to the directives of the NCDC and in constant communication with them,” she added.
