Meanwhile, the Nigerian Union in South Africa (NUSA) has said that 11 Nigerians have so far died of COVID-19 in the country.

Adetola Olubajo, President of NUSA, said in a statement from Pretoria on Wednesday that the COVID-19 deaths were for Gauteng Province alone.

He added that it was yet to get figures from eight other provinces in South Africa, stressing;

At the last count, 11 Nigerians have died from COVID-19 in Gauteng Province alone. I have attended the funeral of some of them.

Olubajo stated that the biggest challenge was the belief by some Nigerians in South Africa that the disease was not real, saying the virus has devastated several countries of the world.
