This study aims to examine the health and socioeconomic impact of COVID-19 in Nigeria. The study uses data from the World Health Organization and other relevant sources to analyze the effects of the pandemic on the Nigerian health sector and its ability to provide equal and adequate care for all citizens. The study also explores the use of theories such as structural functionalism and conflict theory to critically analyze the trends in Nigeria and provide an in-depth understanding of societal functions. The findings reveal that COVID-19 has caused a disruption in the treatment of non-communicable diseases and has led to an imbalance in the distribution of healthcare in Nigeria. The study concludes with recommendations for restructuring the healthcare system to combat COVID-19 and ensure the achievement of sustainable development goals.
