The Nigeria Center for Disease Control and Federal Government has reacted to reports of a vaccine for COVID-19 found in Kano State.
A yellow liquid vaccine been sold in Kano State had emerged on Monday with claims that it prevents people from contracting the deadly Coronavirus.
The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammad said on Tuesday said the vaccine being hawked in Kano is fake and should not be bought. The Minister said this while giving updates on COVID-19 during the Presidential task force press briefing on Tuesday.
He warned that the vaccine is yellow and should not be patronized or administered. Reacting, the NCDC on its Twitter handle also warned Nigerians not to patronize the vaccine as it is fake.
Recall that the World Health Organization (WHO) on Monday confirmed there is no approved vaccine for COVID-19 at the moment. WHO Immunization Team Lead, Dr Fiona Braka, said researches were still ongoing on the deadly viral disease.
A liquid mixture is being sold with claims that it is"#COVID19 vaccine". This is FALSE!
