“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.”
