COVID-19: Nigerian Government warns of another pandemic if…

Nigeria did not ask for Madagascar COVID-19 remedy - Boss Mustapha ...

The Federal Government has warned that Nigeria risks another pandemic if the nation fails to urgently develop her health infrastructure.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Boss Mustapha, gave the warning at the inauguration of the Board of Experts (BoE) of the Healthcare Sector Research and Development Intervention Scheme (HSRDIS) of the Central Bank of Nigeria, in Abuja.

The apex bank initiated the HSRDIS to quickly respond to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 and to strengthen the nation’s health sector.

The SGF said, “If we lose the sense of the moment, we will be confronted with another pandemic and we will find ourselves starting all over again. If we had built on the experiences of Ebola and other epidemics that we have dealt with in the past, probably today we wouldn’t have started with about two molecular laboratories for the testing of COVID-19.

“If you travel the shores of this country, you will find out that we have over 10,000 public primary healthcare centres scattered in wards and villages across the country, ill-equipped, ineffective, and not being put into use but we keep building them.”
