The agency in a post on its Twitter page on Thursday urged Nigerians to discard such reports and adhere only to guidelines from health authorities.

The tweet read: “The claim that drinking palm oil can stop the spread of #COVID19 is FALSE

“To protect yourselves and loved ones from #COVID19 please adhere to guidance from public health authorities and avoid the spread of false information.”

Meanwhile, NCDC on Wednesday confirmed 196 new cases of COVID-19 in Nigeria.
