The Federal Government on Thursday said it had succeeded in tracing 3,550 people who came in contact with patients infected with COVID-19 in the country.
The Director General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, who disclosed this at a press conference organised in Abuja by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, said the 3,550 people were being monitored for symptoms of coronavirus.
The NCDC said this as there were concerns in the country over the rising COVID-19 cases, which increased to 190 on Thursday.
In Osun State, residents of Ejigbo, where six Cote d’Ivoire returnees tested positive, stayed indoor for fear of contracting the virus.
But in Abuja, the NCDC assured Nigerians that the Federal Government was fighting the virus. (Text courtesy Punch)
