Toke Makinwa, a Nigerian media personality, says the Chinese government should be fined for the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.


Over 300,000 cases have been reported globally with more than 14,000 deaths recorded across over 170 countries.

Makinwa took to her Twitter page to express her anger with the Asian country. She said that China should be held responsible for the job losses and layoffs that trailed the outbreak.

“If this outbreak started in Africa, the way they would have contained it, the way they’ll ban and close their borders to anything coming from Africa,” she wrote in series of tweets.


“It’s just unfair. People losing jobs, their lives, conspiracy or not, lab or market in Wuhan. This is insane. Not to even lie, I’m low-key mad at China.

“The world should fine them when all of this is over. The world is paying dearly for it. Stop eating certain animals!

“Everyone is feeling the craziness, a lot of people have been laid off from work, a lot of companies downsizing and restructuring, this bites, crazy times ahead.”


COVID-19 broke out in Wuhan, China, and is reported to have originated from a seafood market where wild animals like marmots, birds, rabbits, bats, and snakes are traded illegally.

The disease, which jumps from animals to humans, was said to have been contracted by stallholders from the seafood market after they came in contact with infected animals.

But some sources from the Asian country and across the globe have criticized China for allegedly covering up COVID-19 and hiding information on the disease at its early stages.


“If I had known what was to happen, I would not have cared about the reprimand. I would have talked about it to whoever, where ever I could,” a Chinese whistleblower doctor said.
