The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, has warned that Nigeria may soon experience a second wave of Covid-19 pandemic.
At the ongoing media briefing with journalists organised by the National Youth Service Corps on Monday, The Director-General of the NCDC, Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu said Nigeria must abide by the protocols and guidelines developed to avoid a second wave of the virus.
He warned that the virus was still around and more dangerous despite the drop in recorded cases.
Meanwhile in Lagos, the State Government has warned that it may impose a new lockdown and return other measures if there is a recurrence of high cases of coronavirus in the state due to the flagrant disregard for the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic protocols.
It stressed the need for residents to strictly adhere to precautionary measures against Covid-19 pandemic transmission to prevent the second wave of infections.
The state commissioner for health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, in a recent statement, noted that many countries around the world have found it necessary to impose a second lockdown and restriction of movements, which have significant socio-economic and security consequences.
Lagos state recorded 255 new COVID-19 infections on November 8 according to data reported by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
