- The House minority leader, Ndudi Elumelu, is free from coronavirus
- This was confirmed by the test results sent by the NCDC to the lawmaker
- Elumelu alongside his family and staff members recently underwent a series of coronavirus tests to ascertain their health status
Officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) have revealed the coronavirus status of the House minority leader, Ndudi Elumelu, his family and staff members.
According to Elumelu, results of tests carried out on him and those who reside with him prove that they do not have the virus, The Nation reports.
The lawmaker said: “I, Hon Ndudi Elumelu, Minority Leader House of Representatives, did another Covid-19 test on Friday 3rd of July with my family and other 11 domestic staff, and am happy to announce that the results came out negative."
Elumelu called on his colleagues in the House to go for coronavirus tests so as to prevent mass infections.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Nigerian universities’ scientists under the aegis of COVID-19 Research Group said they had discovered COVID-19 vaccine.
The scientists made the disclosure on Friday, June 19, saying the vaccine was being developed locally in Africa for Africans but would also work for other continents when unveiled.
Legit.ng gathered that the leader of the team, Dr Oladipo Kolawole, said it would take a minimum of 18 months for the vaccine to be unveiled to the public.
He said this was because a lot of analysis and studies, as well as approvals by medical authorities, were still required.
Kolawole said the study, which led to the medical breakthrough, had enjoyed initial funding by the Trinity Immunodeficient Laboratory and Helix Biogen Consult, Ogbomosho, to the tune of about N7.8 million.
Also, a group of Nigerian Catholic priests developed a supposed cure for the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, a drug called Pax CVD Plus.
The disclosure was made in a statement released and signed by Father Anselm Adodo OSB on Wednesday, April 29, on the official page of the Pax Herbal Clinic and Research Laboratories. The cleric said the drug is solely for the treatment of coronavirus.
Father Anselm said that plant-based pills are seemingly the best approach for coronavirus because these vaccines are easily produced, stored and distributed and could be handled by medical and non-medical personnel as they pose a low contamination risk.
