80% of persons with Covid 19 have mild form of it – NCDC

Written by on April 15, 2020

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control has disclosed that 80% of persons with the novel coronavirus have mild form of it.

NCDC medical officer, Sandra Mbah made this known during a tweet chat today saying Current evidence shows that about 80% of persons with #COVID19 have the mild form of the disease and recover with minimal management.

According to Mbah, NCDC’s current protocol is to have all cases managed by a team of clinicians in a treatment Centre to ensure they have good recovery rate.

The commission’s medical officer also expressed her belief that Nigerians can practice the homecare approach to Covid-19 treatment as cases classified as mild can self-isolate and be managed at home with routine checks by healthcare workers who are supported to do so.

However, she revealed that this has not yet taken effect in Nigeria.
