The Federal Government on Monday reassured Nigerians of its continued commitment to ensure that all those who tested positive for COVID-19 will be given adequate medical attention.
Mr Ferdinand Nwonye, the spokesperson in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, gave the assurance in a statement in Abuja.
According to him, the assurance is to reinforce the commendation by António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, on strategies put in place to contain the outbreak in Nigeria.
“The commendation by the UN on Government of Nigeria’s prompt initiation and implementation of safety precautions, would encourage her to do more.
“This is through the setting up of new medical facilities such as isolation and testing centres to curtail the spread of the virus in Nigeria.
“Government also calls on Nigerians to observe necessary health guidelines, issued by the Federal Ministry of Health and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), to stay safe.” (NAN)
