The Federal Government has appealed to Nigerians to take their health seriously as the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases has risen astronomically by 630%.

The Minister of State for Health, Dr Olorunmimbe Mamora, made the appeal in an interview with Punch. He said there is need for Nigerians to take responsibility to tackle coronavirus as COVID-19 cases continues to increase with the country recording 5,398 infections between December 6 and 15.

When asked on what the Federal Government would do in view of the increase in cases, Mamora stated that the government would continue to strengthen existing measures.

“It’s essentially to strengthen the existing measures through advocacy, awareness creation, education and emphasis on the need for people to take responsibility for their health.”
