COVID-19 kills 27 Nigerians in 5 days

The latest epidemiological data from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) shows that 27 persons died of COVID-19 from January 1 to 5, 2022, bringing the death toll from the pandemic to 3,058.

The data also shows that since January this year, 3,063 COVID-19 cases have been recorded.

Meanwhile, the National Primary Health Care Development Agency said the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine could be received as first and second doses, and as a booster dose for those who had received their second dose of AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines.

The agency stated: “This is to bring to your attention that Pfizer is now open for first and second dose administration to all eligible clients, in addition to being used for a booster dose.

“It is strongly recommended you get vaccinated against COVID-19 to stop the spread of the virus. When you get vaccinated, you protect yourself, your family, friends, and your community against the disease.

“Vaccination with COVID-19 vaccine or any other vaccine is not mandatory in Nigeria.

“However, evidence of vaccination against some diseases such as Yellow Fever and recently COVID-19 is required for entry into some countries.”
