Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) says it has launched a #COVID19NigeriaStories blog to document Nigeria’s response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The Director General of the centre, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Abuja.

He advised Nigerians to log on to — covid19blog.ncdc.gov.ng — to read about the people behind the response.

Ihekweazu added that as Nigeria continued to respond to the novel Coronavirus pandemic, it was important to document the process and inform the public.

He said “we cannot handle future public health emergencies without applying lessons learnt from the current pandemic.

“This is why documenting #COVID19NigeriaStories is important.”

The NCDC boss, who explained that “the #COVID-19NigeriaStories explores different state level responses to COVID-19”, added that “it is interesting to learn how different states are responding toward tackling the pandemic.”

Ihekweazu noted that the blog documentation project was being handled by Nigeria Health Watch, with support from Ford Foundation. (NAN)
