UN Hails Nigeria’s ‘Remarkable Capacity’ In Response To Coronavirus

The United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, has commended Nigeria’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Guterres, who spoke at a virtual news briefing in New York, the United States today, April 3, singled out Nigeria as one of the developing countries that have “shown a remarkable capacity to respond to the disease.

“I have to say this; some of these developing countries have shown a remarkable capacity to respond.

“I was quite impressed to see, for instance, Nigeria putting in place and immediately establishing a hospital.

“And I saw difficulties in countries that are much more developed to do quickly the same.”

The Nigerian government had put in place several measures to tackle the coronavirus since February 7 when the country recorded its first case of the virus.

Nigeria currently has 190 confirmed cases of cornavirus with two deaths and 24 others discharged after they were given a clean bill of health by medical practitioners.
