80 Percent Of Coronavirus Cases In Nigeria Are Not Serious – NCDC

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (BCDC) has said that 80 percent of persons discovered to be positive for the novel coronavirus are not serious cases.

“Current evidence shows that about 80% of persons with #COVID19 have the mild form of the disease and recover with minimal management.”

The NCDC medical officer, Sandra Mbah, in tweet chat, said: “our current protocol is to have all cases managed by a team of clinicians in a treatment centre to ensure we have good recovery rate.”

The commission’s medical officer said that she believed that Nigerians can practice the homecare approach to Covid-19 treatment.

According to her, cases that are classified as mild can self-isolate and be managed at home with routine checks by healthcare workers who are supported to do so.

“This has not yet taken effect in Nigeria.”
