The Nigeria Center for Disease Control has reacted to reports of a vaccine for COVID-19 found in Kano State.
A yellow liquid vaccine been sold in Kano State had emerged on Monday with claims that it prevents people from contracting the deadly Coronavirus.
Reacting, the NCDC on its Twitter handle warned Nigerians not to patronize the vaccine as it is fake.
It said, “A liquid mixture is being sold with claims that it is”#COVID19 vaccine”. This is false!
“There is currently NO VACCINE or drug approved for #COVID19 prevention by health authorities
“Take responsibility; only purchase & consume drugs at accredited pharmacies or health facilities.”
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) on Monday said there was no approved vaccine for COVID-19.
WHO Immunization Team Lead, Dr Fiona Braka, said researches were still ongoing on the deadly viral disease.
