We Need To Learn From Covid-19-Boss Mustapha. The Federal Government has warned Nigerians of another pandemic outbreak. This will come if the country fails to take advantage of opportunities presented by COVID-19. The country needs to improve its health infrastructure.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, stated yesterday. He was inaugurating the Board of Experts (BoE) of the Healthcare Sector Research and Development Intervention Scheme (HSRDIS) in Abuja.
According to Mustapha, Nigeria will have to start all over again if confronted with another pandemic. He advised Nigerians to not fail to take crucial actions now. The SGF warned that we need to learn from other pandemics. He mentioned Ebola and other diseases that has ravaged the county in time pass. Recall that Boss Mustapha has warned that Christians were being reckless about this covid-19 pandemic.
“If we had built on the experiences of Ebola and other epidemics in the past, probably today we would not have started with two molecular laboratories for the testing of COVID-19.
“If you travel the shores of this country, you will find out that we have over 10,000 public primary healthcare centres scattered inwards and villages across the country, ill-equipped, ineffective and not being put into use but we keep building them.”
