NCDC Gives Warning To Nigerians Drinking Palm Oil As Cure For COVID-19
The Nigeria Center for Disease Control, NCDC has asked Nigerians drinking palm oil with the hope that it can stop the spread of Coronavirus to desist from such act.
This comes after reports had emerged a few days ago that drinking palm oil could stop a patient of COVID-19 from infecting others.
However, reacting, NCDC described the claim as false.
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.
This brings the total number of cases in Nigeria to 1, 728.
