The presidential task force on covid-19 says it will launch a platform next week that will verify the originality of results from anywhere around the world.
The Director General of the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC),Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu made this known on Monday in Abuja at the PTF national briefing on covid-19.
Ihekweazu who called on private laboratories conducting covid-19 tests to join the platform to have their data checked and be properly managed, noted that such labs risk loosing their test right if they fail to join. The NCDC boss also said that Nigeria recorded 29 cases of B.1.1.7 covid-19, with results coming from different states. He noted that the center had also activated a short code-"6232" to have more access to Nigerians. He explained that"this number was introduced to enable the public to contact the NCDC's connect centre and access verified information on covid-19 and other infectious diseases. He added that the number was a toll-free and easy to remember number,"which means that all calls to NCDC through 6232 are free of charge"."This is to ensure that all Nigerians have access to verified informations on infectious diseases".
