The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control has raised an alarm of January 2021 being a very tough month following the disregard for health protocols during the December holidays.
Speaking at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Tuesday December 29, the Director-General of NCDC, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu noted that the nation’s health system is struggling to cope with the increasing number of coronavirus infections daily. He added that a spike in Coronavirus infections in January is imminent.
“We just faced the worst week since we started responding to this outbreak. We had more cases in Nigeria last week than in any other previous week since the beginning of the outbreak.
“Pictures and videos from across the country paint a very disheartening situation because it appears that our messages, our appeals to Nigerians over the last few months have not been heeded and we have gone ahead with business as usual.
“Events centres are full, social activities are full and so it is no surprises that cases are rising.
“January will be a tough month, no doubt about it. So, we have to brace ourselves for the consequences of the activities that we have decided to carry out in December.”
