Nigeria might exit COVID-19 second wave soon – Osagie Ehianire


The Health Minister, Dr Osagie Ehanire, has revealed that Nigeria might exit the second wave of the COVID-19 soon.

Ehanire said during a briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Monday:

“This trend in reduction compares with global observations of seeming decline in COVID-19 cases, signifying that the second wave may be receding,” he said.

“On 21st of February 2021, 521 new infections and 8 deaths occurred in 20 states. The sustained testing in states has decreased positively rate.

“We are, however, not drawing conclusions yet and certainly not declaring victory, but rather watching developments as they unfold nationally and internationally, ready to make use of comparative advantages that may emerge.”
