What privilege looks like during COVID-19 Lock-in
While US celebs complain about being “stuck” indoors people in India, Nigeria fight for their lives, this is what privilege looks like during COVID-19 Lock-in.
TMZ posted a few articles highlighting the struggles of the rich and powerful “stuck” in their 100-acre mansions with pools, tennis courts and families.
While these lavish quarantiners sing about having no jewels, clothes, in countries like India, Nigeria, people fight another pandemic against hunger and more importantly for their lives.

As the COVID-19 pandemic increase economic instability and poor welfare across the world as well as rising deaths, here is a brief insight into the latest hit.
Residents of Lagos/Ogun state are burning fires all night to protect their communities from a rising group of terrorists taking advantage of the lock in to rob communities. Last night was no different as punch reports an attack on Agege area at 12am by robbers brandishing axes, cutlasses etc. Vigilantes patrolling the area have already struck once killing one and wounding others in jungle justice violence. The police and government remain silent in what might become escalating warfare for the biggest city in Nigeria.
India on the other hand, one of the most populous countries in the world experiencing mass hunger and attack on citizens as government struggle to control the populations among uncertainties of feeding and other health conditions including infections.
The feedback is not however looking much better for the socioeconomically disadvantaged in the privileged communities like the US who are being denied testing despite obvious symptoms of COVID-19 and being left to die over lack of health insurance.
A woman says her son was denied a test for COVID-19 because he has autism. It’s not the only reason she’s concerned vulnerable people will not get the same level of care during the pandemic. @CityCynthia with the Premier’s response. https://t.co/TFGYvThjwg
