No Approved Vaccine yet in Nigeria for COVID-19 says NCDC
The World Health Organisation (WHO) on Monday insisted that there was no approved vaccine in Nigeria or any part of Africa for COVID-19 saying researches are still ongoing on the deadly viral disease.
WHO Immunisation Team Lead, Dr Fiona Braka, spoke on the efforts of the world body on the reported vaccines for the deadly virus.
Braka said COVID-19, being a new virus, has no ready vaccines, adding that public safety was the key consideration of WHO campaign for now.
COVID-19 is a new disease, and as such, there are no ready vaccines available to be deployed for the control of the pandemic.
However, a lot of research and scientific works are ongoing to develop vaccines, but these usually take time to ensure that it is safe for use in the wider population and also effective for control of the pandemic.
