The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control NCDC has said that while there is no known vaccine for COVID-19, some trials have shown promising results in laboratory studies.
Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, Director-General of NCDC, said on Sunday in Abuja that it takes time to obtain accurate results from such clinical trials.
Ihekweazu said that there is currently no approved treatments or preventative therapeutic strategies for COVID-19 pandemic, people with COVID-19 infection can benefit from supportive care.
He urged all healthcare workers to continue to observe standard precautions, including the use of personal protective equipment when caring for patients known or suspected of COVID-19.
He said until the World Health Organisation have clear definitive evidence that ongoing clinical trials were safe and effective for the management of COVID-19, there is no treatment.
However NCDC will continue to inform Nigerians on the progress of clinical trials on the management of the pandemic and provide them with facts to protect their health.
