Abstract

The negative effect of the invisible enemy is ravaging the entire world populace, leading to global economic crisis. Businesses across the globe are feeling the negative impact of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic threatening their going concern status. SMEs in Nigeria are not left out in the share of this negative effect of the invisible enemy, as their survival is being threatened and the government is not helping. We reviewed literature on the impact of COVID-19 on SMEs and subsequently proposed a model to help them win the fight alongside with the federal government in flattening the curve. We concluded that SMEs can triumph in this turbulent time following the laid down health advice, and we pray the world heals of this pandemic in no distant time
