Five states in Nigeria are engaging in therapy for the COVID-19 solidarity trial sponsored by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Boss Mustapha, the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and Secretary to the
Government of the Federation
He said this while complimenting survivors for presenting their experiences.
The chairman disclosed this at the briefing in
Abuja on Friday.
To discourage self-therapy, Boss Mustapha, however, strongly warned them from giving features of treatment.
He said.: “However, an emerging issue from all these testimonies is the issue of prescription for treatment.
We should always remember that the symptoms of COVID-19 mimic some illnesses we already know, but treating the symptoms is not the same as treating the virus. And for this reason, we strongly discourage self-medication;
We shall continue to encourage all Nigerians that see the symptoms to test, and if positive, go into the isolation centre for care by experts”
