CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Coronavirus known as “COVID-19” appeared in the city of Wuhan, China, and has spread rapidly to more than 70 countries across the world. However, the viruses found no evidence that was made in a laboratory or otherwise engineered. Several authors have discussed the origin of the virus. For example, Anderson et al, (2020) confirmed that, it was originated through natural process. Zhou. et al. (2020) investigations have shown that some bat SARSr-CoVs have the possibility to infect human. According to World Health Organization WHO, (2020) corona virus disease is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus which affect people in different ways. The common symptoms include fever, dry cough, tiredness, shortness of breath, pains and aches, sore throat, and very few people will report diarrhoea, nausea or a runny nose. The virus spreads rapidly across the world. The WHO report on 2 nd April 2020, 00:15 GMT shows that there 827,419 confirmed cases of coronavirus in 206 countries. The fast spread of this virus has called the attention of the world to quickly take all the necessary measure fight and control the spread of the virus. Presently, the global community is ravaged by the pandemic while the end to the COVID-19 pandemic is remains unknown due to variations of its spread among the countries. Social media network sites are online platforms through which individuals, groups and organisations create presence and share information through texts, photos, music videos etc. The more worrisome aspect of the social media is its potency to be used to spread fake news with its significant negative effects on the society and on people’s decisions and behaviours. Fake news comes in various forms such as comedy for fun, however, a type of fake news which succeeds in convincing people of an untrue message is obviously quite worrisome.

        The first case of COVID-19 was reported to have been confirming in Africa on 14th February 2020, and subsequently to the sub Saharan Africa. Consequently, Nigeria has also recorded first cases of COVID-19 virus on 27th February 2020 where an Italian citizen who entered Nigeria from Milan on a business trip, was tested positive in Lagos, Nigeria. Similarly, on 9th March 2020 a second case of the virus was reported in Ogun State all in South West of Nigeria. However, 0n 1st April 2020 reported 12 new cases in the country, which account for 210 confirm cases, 25 discharge, and 3 deaths. Following the announcement by World Health Organisation (2020) that Nigeria is among other 13 African countries identified as high-risk for the spread of the virus. The Federal government of Nigeria has set up a Coronavirus Preparedness Group (CPG) to mitigate the impact of the virus on 31 st January 2020. Although, on 28th January 2020, the Federal Government of Nigeria assured its citizen on the readiness and strength to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the country. Likewise, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) set up a group for coronavirus which was ready to activate the incident if any case emerged in Nigeria. It is to this regard that study is based on the analysis of facebook mesaages on corona virus.
