This a reflection of the ongoing global pandemic- the coronavirus pandemic At the moment the world population is shut down, business, Schools, and other activities are halted. While many cities and countries are at different stages in the trajectory of the pandemic, its effects will be long-lasting most everywhere. Beyond the public health emergency. The project seeks to explore the Educational and socioeconomic impact of Covid19 in a city like Lagos. The city is usually made up of lots of people seeking for their daily bread on daily basis, lots of vehicles are usually seen on the street 

Ever since the first case was recorded in Lagos on the 27th of February 2020, the virus has gradually spread to some part of the country with new cases arising almost every day making it 60,000 cases and 1.115 deaths as of 11th of October 2020 there has been a Total lockdown by the government to curb the spread of the virus. The united nation (UN) estimated that 1,25billion students globally are currently at home due to the lockdown as a means to curb the COVID19 pandemic.
