We understand these are challenging times, and Nigerians may be worried, but the Federal Ministry of Health, through the NCDC, is doing everything it can to continue to ensure the safety and health security of every Nigerian. “Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have not been licensed to treat COVID-19 related symptoms or prevent infection,” he said. The NCDC boss said that clinical trials were still ongoing to test chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine as an agent in the treatment of COVID-19, or to prevent COVID-19 infection. He said that until the WHO had clear, definitive evidence that the treatments were safe and effective for the treatment of COVID-19, it should not be misused. In addition to responding to the outbreak, NCDC has begun a communications campaign to debunk misinformation and provide Nigerians with facts to protect their health. NAN reports that the breakdown of COVID-19 cases from the states shows that Lagos still has the highest number of confirmed cases in the country with 32 cases, followed by Abuja with 10 cases, Ogun, three, while Ekiti, Oyo, Edo, Bauchi Osun and Rivers have one case each.
