Nigerian Vice-president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has warned that the threat of the coronavirus pandemic is still pending it end.
Osinbajo stated this at the flag-off of Integrated Medical Outreach Programme (IMOP) on Monday in Abuja.
He noted that the Federal Government is examining the readiness of Nigeria’s health facilities, in the case of any eventualities.
“There is no way one can speak on healthcare today without a mention of the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Our robust and proactive preventive efforts have been widely praised and we must commend the Minister of Health, his team and all the public health services for their diligence and commitment.
“But the threat is not over and as you can see, we are also examining the readiness of our health facilities for whatever eventualities that may arise,” Osinbajo said.
Only two cases have tested positive so far in Nigeria, with the virus now in 27 African countries.
