It is clear coronavirus has hit our world below its belt. It started in China, October last year. Today, millions have been infected, thousands have died, and a few have survived in both developing and developed countries to tell their stories.
The economy of individuals, groups, corporate bodies, government agencies, nations, etc, has also been hit and humanity is not finding it fun, at all.
But, Mr David Agbele, aka Dav, managing director, Dav Guest House, Ifo, Ogun State, says the outbreak of this coro-of-a-virus has both positive and negative angles to it.
He told www.csomedia.com.ng point-blank that though the virus has wrecked our world, it has also taught us lessons, good or bad, for those whose are either positive or negative in nature.
His words: “Yes, though the outbreak has collapsed our economies, but it has taught some of us how to be moderate, prudent and careful in our dealings with ourselves and others”.
Agbele, who is also the owner of Dav Viewing Centre explained that like in other business concerns, the hospitality business has been badly heat, since coro was officially acknowledged to exist around February this year.
“Fewer customers are going to hotels, guest houses, viewing centers, and other business outfits in my area and indeed Nigeria and all over the world”, he said.
But, government at the local, state and federal levels at this stage should come to the aide of entrepreneurs as the virus has reduced some people to desperate hustlers.
The teacher-turned-entrepreneur said hoteliers and other small business owners are finding it extremely difficult to survive this time around, though like the Bible says, this one will also pass away.
