The rate through which the newly discovered coronavirus otherwise referred to as covid-19 is spreading seems to be very alarming and therefore calls for immediate and proper attention in order to forestall ugly occurrences and experience of deteriorate in the health of the majority of people in the country. Of recent, reports are showing that the impact of the third wave is already showing in some vulnerable places. The rate of the spread of this deadly and threatening pandemic in almost every nook and cranny of the country, most especially the highly populated cities and towns, seems to be spontaneous and exponential sort of. Hence, as a result, decisive measures and provision need to be put in place so as to not to make the situation more disastrous. From observations so far, it was gathered that the numbers recorded during week days is relatively far more when compared with the number of occurrence during weekends such as Fridays as well as Saturdays. Hence this observations calls for immediate attention. This work considers the sudden numerical growths in the actual number of the casualties (otherwise called the first and the second waves) which occur intermittently, the statistical implications and recommendations for a better and saver live for the populace.
