COVID-19: We may have definitive cure for coronavirus – Prof. Akin Abayomi says
Prof. Akin Abayomi, the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, has said that the state is looking at clinical trial for the treatment of COVID-19.
Speaking at a press briefing in Ikeja, Abayomi said that they will be a partnership with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and other institutions towards the target.
“There are a lot of research going on around the world, so it is possible that at some time in the near future, we will have what we may describe as a definitive cure for COVID-19.
“Indeed we are setting up our own clinical trials in Lagos in collaboration with other institutions and the NCDC and hopefully by this time next week, we should have started some clinical trials on our patients and on our staff in Lagos State,” he said.
