NIGERIA is experiencing a reduction in COVID-19 cases and deaths.

  Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, stated this in Abuja during the ministry’s bi-weekly COVID-19 update.

  According to him, this did not mean the COVID-19 pandemic had gone away from the country but has only slowed down.

  “Nigeria at the moment is in a lull with reduction in infection rate and the fatalities. We’re still watching closely as we’ve seen re-emergence that has surprised people in other countries. We must therefore refrain from non-essential crowd, and if it has to happen we must apply non pharmaceutical measures like wearing facemasks, washing hands, sanitising and being careful with our interactions,” he said.
