Breaking: 30 confirmed COVID-19 cases recorded in Nigeria

 

The Federal Government on Sunday announced COVID-19 cases in Nigeria has risen to 30

Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) disclosed this via its verified Twitter handle.

It stated that, though no death has been recorded so far in the country, two of the new cases just returned from a trip abroad while one is a contact from one of the confirmed cases.

“Three new cases of #COVID19 have been confirmed in Lagos, Nigeria. 2 cases are returning travellers and 1 is a contact of a confirmed case,” the NCDC stated.

“As at 05:28 pm on the 22nd of March, there are 30 confirmed cases of #COVID19 in Nigeria. 2 have been discharged with no deaths.”

The Federal Government has, however, devised several measures to prevent further spread of the virus.

This includes a shutdown of train stations, schools, National Youth Service Corps, Churches, Mosques, and every form of public gathering.

The public are advised to also imbibe good hygiene and sanitation, proper washing of hands as well as maintaining social distance.

Currently, the virus has no cure.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) is yet to announce any antidote but nations such as China, the US is considering the use of Chloroquine as clinical trial.
