Coronavirus Will Get To All States In Nigeria – NCDC



The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has just reported that the deadly coronavirus pandemic will surely get to all the thirty six (36) states in Nigeria.

This information was revealed by the Director-General of the agency, Chikwe Ihekweazu, while briefing the public on Channels Television Sunrise Daily programme on Thursday.

This virus has already affected 407 persons in Nigeria from a total of 22 states with 128 persons discharged and 12 deaths in record. The Director General of NCDC had revealed that the virus is set to spread to all states of the federation while comparing it to Lassa Fever.

He noted that Lassa fever has been smoothly treated without any lockdown because it wasn’t necessary and the response was fairly efficient. Although he also added that that Covid19 is on a much larger scale as it has already spread to 22 states and he also said that there is no reason why it won’t spread throughout the states of the federation as it is a respiratory virus.

He said that the NCDC will continue to be transparent with its operations and he also emphasized that the virus “will circulate in Nigeria, absolutely with no doubt.”
He added that;
 “It will circulate in Nigeria, absolutely no doubt and our responsibility as a country is to prepare more, to be able to detect, isolate, treat, list contacts, and stop transmission,” he noted.
