Coronavirus: ‘We Are Running Against Time With No Laboratories, Ventilators’ – NCDC

 

IgbereTV reports that the Director-General, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu, has said that the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 is running against time as Nigerians are already getting tired of the lockdown.

Ihekweazu spoke during a virtual press briefing by the World Economic Forum/World Health Organisation on Thursday.

He said:-

“We will be transferring some of our knowledge from states to states. We are running against time because people are pushing to live normal life.

“At the same time, we are confronted with the escalation phase of the figures. So how to balance this will be very a difficult decision to be made in the coming week.

“We wished we had the laboratories and ventilators we need, but we simply don’t, and the supply chain of these things are fragmented at the moment, so we will have to make do with what is available.”
