CORONAVIRUS WILL SOON GET TO ALL THE 36 STATE NCDC VOICED OUT
Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has said the deadly coronavirus pandemic will get to all the 36 states in Nigeria.
The Director-General of the agency, Chikwe Ihekweazu, disclosed this while speaking on Television programme on Thursday.
Already, the disease has affected 407 individuals in Nigeria across 22 states. While 128 persons had been discharged, Nigeria has recorded 12 deaths.
Ihekweazu said it will spread to all states as he compared the virus to Lassa Fever.
We have responded to Lassa smoothly and nobody shut down the country because it wasn’t necessary, the response was fairly efficient.
Now, COVID-19 is on a much larger scale at the moment in 22 states but it will grow to every state in Nigeria, there is no reason why it won’t it is a respiratory virus.
He said NCDC will continue to be transparent with its operations.
