COVID-19: ‘With The Laxity Of Our Own Population, A Second Wave Is Imminent’- Health Minister


On Saturday, October 31st, 2020  at the virtual Annual General Meeting and Scientific Conference of the Guild of Medical Directors in Lagos State with the theme ‘Post-COVID-19 Era: Economics and Healthcare Delivery in Nigeria’ Minister of Health warned Nigerians to be more cautious.

According to the Minister of Health in Nigeria, Dr Osagie Ehanire, he revealed and urged Nigerians to stop flouting the covid-19 protocols because the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic is imminent in the country if Nigerians continue to flout all COVID19 rules.

The minister said the second wave being experienced in Europe and America should serve as a note of warning to Nigerians. He said with the high volume of human traffic from Nigeria to those continents, reopening of schools, the #EndSARS protest, and many other factors, Nigeria is predisposed to a second wave of the pandemic.

He said:

“I fear that with the laxity displayed by our own population, our own second wave is imminent.”
