Nigerian youths at the ages of 20 and 40 are purely the responsible ones spreading COVID-19 in the country, while the majority of those bearing the brunt are older people from 50 years and above.
This was disclosed by the Nigerian Director-General for the centre for Disease Control (NCDC) Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu on Thursday in Abuja at the 48th joint national briefing of the presidential task force (PTF) on the covid-19 pandemic.
In his words Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu revealed that the virus is increasing due to the transmission are mostly among the younger people.
“As more people are infected across the world, you would have seen the numbers, it is increasingly obvious that transmission among younger people really, not children, but people aged between 20 and 40 as far as we know are really driving the spread of this virus, but those that are bearing the brunt of it are people age 50 and above.
“Three out of five people who died from COVID-19 are 50 and above so we have to work harder, all of us collectively to protect our elderly”
He re-iterated the need to always remember the rules and proper guidelines set aside by the World Health Organization (WHO) and their agency (NCDC) regarding stringent measure on how to forestall the rate of covid-19 infection as the country is about to relapse the lockdown rules effected on interstate travel since the outbreak of the disease in Nigeria.
“We are on the verge of opening our airports, we have relaxed Intercity travel. “We know that we have a family-loving people and that over the next few weeks we will all start having this urge to go and visit our parents, our, uncles, our aunts, restart the funeral activities that we have postponed for months, start the weddings, birthing, baptisms that we have postponed for months.
“It is important to do these things and the interstate travel will allow us to do this but remember we haven’t relaxed the guidelines of mass gatherings,” Ihekweazu said
