NAFDAC says test on Moderna vaccine to take four days
The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has said the results of test conducted on the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine will be ready in three to four days.
“Before COVID-19, we had a 17 per cent prevalence rate of substandard drugs in Nigeria.“Actually, in terms of substandard and fake drugs, South-West has the highest prevalent rate. In terms of states, Lagos has the highest and we are working on that to reduce it,” she added.
The NAFDAC DG disclosed that so far, the agency has successfully apprehended over 70 substandard and falsified products through its surveillance efforts.She attributed the inability of NAFDAC to conduct fresh survey on substandard drugs to the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic which disrupted activities and programmes in all sectors of the economy.
Again, Adeyeye blamed the influx and prevalence of substandard products in the country on the absence of a regulatory body like NAFDAC at the various ports of entry.She said the agency has since overcome the challenge and has been working hard to stem the tide of distribution of substandard products around the country. headtopics.comRead more: The Punch Newspapers »
