‘Expect consequences of End SARS protest in two weeks’ – NCDC director, Chikwe Ihekweazu

The Director-General of the National Centre for Disease Control, Chikwe Ihekweazu has said that Nigerians should prepare for the consequences of the End SARS protest. 

He further disclosed that the curfew imposed in different parts of the country in order to stop looting at warehouses affected the COVID-19 testing centres as well.

The NCDC DG noted that the consequences are not inevitable and also averred that Nigerians can still do their part to prevent them. He said;

“Forty to 60 per cent of our testing cases are reported from Lagos. Our labs in Lagos have not been able to perform as they normally would for the past two to three weeks.

“As we move into the next two weeks, it will not take a rocket scientist to know that we have to watch the numbers very carefully.

“The reasons are obvious; we have gathered in our masses for whatever reason and for now, we have to keep our eyes open for the potential consequences. Those consequences are not inevitable; we can still do our part to prevent them.

“We cannot let down our guards; we cannot afford to add this to the many challenges that we have. Many states have done well by raising their testing capacity. So, we must stay on the ball.”
