According to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, more than 3000 COVID-19-related fatalities have occurred in Nigeria in the previous two years (NCDC).

On the second anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria, the NCDC issued a statement on February 28, 2022, commemorating the outbreak.

On Thursday, February 27, 2020, the virus’s first case was discovered in Nigeria.

Nigeria has subsequently recorded approximately 250,000 cases, with over 3,000 fatalities, according to the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (NCDC).

The agency stated in a statement titled “Two Years of COVID-19 Response: Building on Lessons from COVID-19 to Strengthen Nigeria’s Health Security for the Future.” The agency stated that it has learned a valuable lesson in terms of strengthening,

 “the country’s health system to cope with other infectious diseases and future health emergencies.”

The NCDC said, “On Sunday, 27th of February 2022, marked exactly two years since the first case of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was first detected in Nigeria. This was largely aided by the prompt notification of health authorities by an astute attending physician. Since then, Nigeria has confirmed an excess of 250,000 cases, recorded over 3,000 deaths.”

Due to its worldwide significance and economic consequence, the COVID-19 pandemic response has garnered the biggest political commitment in Nigeria’s history of health system improvement, according to the agency.

This, according to the agency, has created chances for health to be prioritized on the political agenda and to attract the necessary future investment in health security.
