Nigerian government has declared that the country was fortified with three well-equipped centres to diagnose the deadly disease and other viral infections.

The World Health Organization on Tuesday proposed an official name for the illness caused by the new coronavirus: COVID-19. The acronym stands for coronavirus disease 2019, as the illness was first detected toward the end of last year. Death toll now exceeds 1,100.

This is according to  Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Emmanuel Ehanire, on Tuesday while  confirming  that two suspected cases of Coronavirus have tested negative after diagnosis in the country, The Guardian reports.

Mr. Ehanire, while declaring the Kano State Primary Health Summit open at Government House, affirmed that the country was fortified with three well-equipped centres to diagnose the deadly disease and other viral infections.

He stressed that the Federal Government has put adequate mechanisms in place at all entry points in the country to screen all incoming passengers to ascertain their health status.

The minister added that efforts are being made to prevent possible carriers of the Coronavirus disease from entering the country.
