The Federal Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, has cautioned that the second wave of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic is imminent in Nigeria.
According to him, should Nigerians continue to disregard all COVID-19 protocols, then the country will have to brace itself up for another devastating moment.
He made this known in a recent virtual Annual General Meeting and Scientific Conference of the Guild of Medical Directors in Lagos State with the theme ‘Post-COVID-19 Era: Economics and Healthcare Delivery in Nigeria.’
In his submission, he indicated that what is being experienced in the Western world should serve as a word of caution to Nigerians adding that with the high volume of human traffic from Nigeria to those continents, reopening of schools, the #EndSARS protest, and many other factors, Nigeria will likely experience this second wave.
In his submission, he said;
“I fear that with the laxity displayed by our own population, our own second wave is imminent.”
