The World Health Organisation (WHO) has disclosed that Covid-19 trial drug to COVID-19 has commenced in some states in Nigeria.

Fiona Braka, Nigeria WHO representative made this known on Monday during Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

In April, Lagos, FCT, Ogun, Kaduna, Sokoto and Kano states signed up to participate in the WHO solidarity trial to help find an effective treatment for Coronavirus in the shortest possible time.

Braka however, didn’t mention the states that have commenced the process.

She Said:

The solidarity trial is a large multi-country effort that is going on across several countries globally. We are picking up on that trial in Nigeria; some states have started while some are yet to start.

The whole idea is that the large pool of information across countries will be systematically analysed at the global level, in addition to what is coming in from the other countries. Guidance will now be provided to countries on which formulation is more effective.

These are not new drugs that we are trying but drugs that we already have available but are simply being repurposed for the intention of determining their effect on the coronavirus. We will keep you updated on what the timeline for the vaccine will look like. But we are still early in the process in collection of the data.
