The Federal Government has excused reports that a few states in Nigeria are currently liberated from COVID-19 having released all patients in their separation and treatment focuses.
A few states had as of late released all their COVID-19 patients, giving the feeling that they are currently liberated from the infection.
The administration additionally grimaced at the general absence of consistence with COVID-19 wellbeing conventions, deploring how Nigerians currently wear facemasks just to avoid capture instead of as a security measure to end the spread of the infection.
These were uncovered on Monday in Abuja during the day by day preparation of the Presidential Taskforce PTF on Covid-19.
Chief General, Nigerian Center for Disease Control NCDC, Dr. Chikwe Iheakwazu said no state in the nation can yet be proclaimed Covid-19 free regardless of whether they have released all their Covid-19 patients.
“A few states were releasing patients and pronouncing themselves COVID-19 free. No state in Nigeria is COVID-19 free. Not one. No nation on the planet is COVID-19 free.
Indeed, even New Zealand that is an Island state is as yet having new cases after a time of not having any. We can’t separate ourselves from the remainder of the nation. We live in a unique situation.
“Infections spread. It is the idea of them. Along these lines, at this moment, no state is COVID-19 free. That is the reason we need to continue accomplishing this work we are doing, trying individuals, seeing whether they have it.
Regardless of whether you are asymptomatic, you can spread it. That is the reason anticipation is significant. On the off chance that you can’t forestall, you recognize and it is that location we call research facility testing which we need to scale up”, he expressed.
