There’s something called hunger virus.
Senator Shehu Sani Former senator Shehu Sani, Senator who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the national assembly, has jokingly advised Nigerians not to rush and call the Nigerian Central for Disease Control (NCDC) if they feel symptoms of pains in their stomachs and their body is shaking, that they should rather ask their neighbours if they have gari.
