Nigerians have been urged to take their health seriously as the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases increases astronomically by 630%.

Minister of State for Health, Dr Olorunmimbe Mamora, made the appeal in an interview with Punch.

According to him, there is need for Nigerians to take responsibility to tackle coronavirus as COVID-19 cases continues to increase with the country recording  5,398 infections between December 6 and 15.

On what the Federal Government would do in view of the increase in cases,  Mamora  stated that the government would continue to strengthen existing measures.

“It’s essentially to strengthen the existing measures through advocacy, awareness creation, education and emphasis on the need for people to take responsibility for their health.”
