To overcome fear we need to understand what fear is. “Fear is a natural, powerful, and primitive human emotion; fear alerts us to the presence of danger or the threat of harm, whether that danger is physical or psychological”. Fear is beneficial to us humans; it is an essential response to physical and emotional threat; if we didn’t feel it, we wouldn’t protect ourselves from actual threats. But sometimes, we go overboard with the fear thing, stopping us from experiencing the beautiful things life has to offer

Nigeria has confirmed its first case of Covid-19, our worse fear. But this is not the time to panic, the coronavirus could be highly contagious, but it is far less lethal than other infections we have successfully dealt with in the past, like SARS and Ebola. Covid-19 has only 2% death rate, with another 18 – 20% becoming critically hospitalized.
