WHO warns of future pandemic after COVID-19
A warning has been issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO) that COVID-19 might not be the last pandemic the world would witness.
Dr Walter Kazadi Mulombo, the WHO Country Representative in Nigeria, stated this at the ninth General Meeting and Scientific Conference of the Epidemiological Society of Nigeria held in Port Harcourt.
Mulombo noted that Coronavirus has provided Nigeria and the global community an opportunity to strengthen immunisation, build capacity of health workers and strengthen disease surveillance.
“COVID-19 pandemic has taught us a great lesson on preparedness.
“It is not yet over. It may not likely be the last pandemic. Therefore, we must sustain the tempo,” Mulombo said.
As at Monday morning, Nigeria has 174,315 confirmed cases and had recorded 2,149 deaths, amid fear of a third wave of COVID-19.
