How Troubled Are You with the Increasing COVID-19 Cases in Nigeria?
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, on Thursday, confirmed 193 new Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, as total infections in the country surpass 5,000 now at 5,162.
“The rise in COVID-19 cases brings into focus the gaping holes in Nigeria’s healthcare system and concerns about the government’s ability to respond to the pandemic,” said Anietie Ewang, Nigeria researcher at Human Rights Watch.
The agency also stated that three persons have been confirmed dead to the virus, bringing the total number of death to 167.
“At this critical time, the authorities need to provide timely and accurate information on the country’s preparedness and address inconsistencies that may increase the vulnerability of its citizens, especially those most at risk.”
