The 3d render of coronavirus model was created with consultations of certified geneticist. 3D structural models and function annotation for proteins encoded by the genome of 2019-nCoV, which is the novel coronavirus causing the COVID-19 pneumonia. (Gray color) Virus membrane (Red and purple color) Surface glycoprotein Spike protein: attaches the virion to the cell membrane by interacting with host receptor, initiating the infection. (Blue color) Packages the positive strand viral genome RNA into a helical ribonucleocapsid (RNP) and plays a fundamental role during virion assembly through its interactions with the viral genome and membrane protein (Green color). Plays an important role in enhancing the efficiency of subgenomic viral RNA transcription as well as viral replication. (White color) RNA (Green color) Component of the viral envelope that plays a central role in virus morphogenesis and assembly via its interactions with other viral proteins. (Flower shape) Plays a central role in virus morphogenesis and assembly. Acts as a viroporin and self-assembles in host membranes forming pentameric protein-lipid pores that allow ion transport.

Since the beginning of this year, students studying abroad or those who just secured admission are seriously been affected by the pandemics. Many self-sponsored students and those on partial scholarship could not afford to pay rent and at the same time pay to be evacuated back to Nigeria thereby making them stranded in many countries of the world.

For example, a notable Scholarship Forum in Nigeria, The International Scholarship Forum (ISF) noted on a tweet this evening that TVC news reported through the President of the Nigeria Students Association in South Africa that over 174 Nigerian students studying in South Africa want to come home but could not afford the exorbitant amount of $840 (roughly # 400k = 1-way ticket), billed to them by airpeace through the Nigeria Government. It was claimed that the amount they asked them to pay was far greater than d initial amount of less than $500 (for return ticket before the lockdown).

I think when it comes to the issue of welfarism of Nigerians, our Government should wake up and act like other countries of the world. They should rather assist these students by either subsidising the amount or evacuating them free of charge.
