Nigeria is not yet at its Coronavirus peak yet – NCDC DG, Chikwe Ihekweazu

Nigeria is not yet at its Coronavirus peak yet; we still have a number of weeks to go – NCDC DG, Chikwe Ihekweazu.

The Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu has revealed that Nigeria still has some number of weeks to go before reaching its Coronavirus peak. 

Chikwe however stated the agency he heads is instituting different measures to ensure the nation’s health system does not get overwhelmed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

He said on Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’;

 “From our projection, we are not near the peak yet; we still have a number of weeks to go.

“But we are trying to stretch out these weeks even further so we can push the peak a bit further out but make sure that the peak is not as steep as it would otherwise have been if no measures were put in place.”

The NCDC DG who decried the limiting factors making the transmission of coronavirus possible in the country, said they are completely outside the control of the health sector.

Chikwe added; 

“Of course, we are over-stretched … but we will not stop because we really don’t have an option NCDC boss admitted.

“At the moment and from what we know, we will not be able to radically stop in a day or two, 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.”
