The Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) Director-General, Mr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, said Nigeria still has some weeks before getting to the peak of coronavirus.
Chikwe also noted that the agency is placing different measures to ensure the health system of the country doesn’t get too congested with the pandemic.
He stated this when he played host on Channels TV’ Sunrise Daily.’
“From our projection, we are haven’t gotten to the peak yet, and we still have some weeks to go.
“But we are trying to make these weeks even longer so we can push the peak a bit further out and make sure that the peak won’t be serious as it would have been if there were no measures put in place.”
Chikwe also cried out that there are limiting factors that make the transmission of the virus in the country very possible.
“Of course, the sector is over-stretched, but we won’t stop because we don’t have an option NCDC boss admitted.
“At the moment and from what we know, we will not be able to stop in a day or two radically, or even a few weeks but what we are trying to do is really to stretch out that curve so that the health system can cope with the number of cases coming in.”
