FG imposes travel restrictions on 100 COVID-19 protocols’ violators

Published

on

The Federal Government has imposed travel restrictions on 100 passengers for flouting COVID-19 directives.

Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 announced this through its Twitter handle on Tuesday.

This came as the country recorded a total of 643 new coronavirus cases on Monday, signifying a slight increase of 27 per cent over the past 24 hours.

The PTF also released the passport details of the defaulters, stating that they have been restricted from travelling for six months.

“Presidential Task Force sanctions 100 passports in Second Batch of those who failed to comply with the mandatory Day 7 post-arrival COVID-19 Test. Penalty: six-month travel restriction from February 5 to July 30, 2021,” it tweeted.

In the list containing the passport number of the defaulters, it added, “The Federal Government is placing travel restrictions on the following passports due to non-compliance with the mandatory Day and post-arrival COVID-19 test.”

The Federal Government had in January placed travel restrictions on 100  travellers who failed to undergo the compulsory COVID-19 test after returning into the country.

It said the restrictions started from January 1, 2021, and would last till June 30, 2021.

The PTF said the defaulting passengers have been notified and will be prevented from travelling out of the country during the period.

Meanwhile, out of the 643 new COVID-19 infections confirmed across 18 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in the latest update by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Oyo recorded the highest number of fresh cases with 88 positive samples.

Next on the list was Lagos, the epicentre of the pandemic in Nigeria, which followed closely with 86 new infections,  and Rivers with 55 positive samples.

A breakdown of other states with confirmed cases is as follows: Edo (54), Akwa Ibom (53), Adamawa (52), Plateau (45), Kaduna (41), FCT (34), Kwara (27), Benue (20), Kano (19), Delta (18), Nasarawa (16), Niger (15), Bayelsa (11), Borno (5), Bauchi (2), and Sokoto (2).

A total of 8,473 infections have been recorded in the past seven days, while the country’s tally of confirmed cases  across all the states and the FCT, has now exceeded 140,000.

Six new deaths were confirmed on Monday, bringing the total number of fatalities to 1,673.

According to the NCDC, 1,110 patients were confirmed to have been discharged on Monday, which included 744 community recoveries in Lagos state, 100 in Rivers, 78 in Plateau, 72 in Kaduna, and two in Benue “managed in line with guidelines”.

A total of 114,635 patients have now been discharged across the country, while 24,083 are currently active cases.

FG okays another COVID vaccine, Sinopharm, for Nigeria

Published

on

Another COVID-19 vaccine, Sinopharm BBIBP-CorV, has been approved for use in Nigeria, Executive Director, National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Faisal Shuaib, has said.

He stated this on Tuesday at a media briefing in Abuja.

The approval is coming some weeks after NAFDAC approved the Moderna and Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccines for emergency use in Nigeria.

The Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine is an inactivated COVID-19 vaccine and had been approved by the World Health Organisation for emergency use.

Shuaib said on Tuesday that the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control had approved the vaccine three days ago.

“NAFDAC has approved Sinopharm vaccine. The approval was done three days ago. And yes, Sinopharm vaccine has also received WHO certification,” he said.

He also said, “It is a potential vaccine that we could use. There are so many vaccines out there, but one thing that we are very clear about is that we are not going to use all the available vaccines in Nigeria.

“At some point, we are going to draw a line in terms of the number of vaccines we would use, so that we can keep a close watch on the number of vaccines we are utilising in Nigeria.”

He said the vaccine was developed by Sinopharm’s Beijing Institute of Biological Products, “sometimes written as Beijing Bio-Institute of Biological Products”, noting that there are sometimes two different acronyms, BBIBP and BIBP, for the same vaccine.

“It completed phase three trials in Argentina, Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Pakistan, Peru and United Arab Emirates (UAE), with over 60,000 participants. BBIBP-CorV shares, similar technology with CoronaVac and Covaxin, other inactivated virus vaccines for COVID-19,” he said.

“Its product name is SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine ‘Vero Cell’, not to be confused with the similar product name of CoronaVac,” Shuaib said.

Lagos records 35 deaths amid COVID third wave

Published

on

A total of 135 deaths have been recored in Lago State amid rising third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the state government has said.

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, disclosed this on Monday during a media briefing on the COVID situation in the state.

On July 11, Sanwo-Olu had warned Lagos residents of a third wave of infections, following an increase in the number of cases recorded in the state.

The Federal Government on August 2 declared that Nigeria was experiencing a third wave of infections.

Sanwo-Olu said on Monday that since the start of the pandemic, 5,551 positive cases had been admitted at COVID isolation centres in Lagos.

“We are now clearly in the middle of third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and Lagos has remained the epicentre of the disease in Nigeria,” he said.

The governor also said, “Test positivity rate currently stands at 12.1 percent, compared to 1.1 percent at the end of June, and seven percent at end of July. As at August 21, 4,387 positive cases are currently being managed actively in community.

“Over the course of managing the COVID-19 pandemic, about 5,551 patients have been admitted into our various COVID-19 care centres in Lagos, with 506 registered fatalities. Of these deaths, 135 have sadly, happened in this current third wave.

“I commiserate with all residents who have lost loved ones to the pandemic. We share in your pain and grief. As a society and as a government, it is for us to redouble our efforts to defeat this devastating pandemic.”

He said the state had seen a surge in severe cases, adding that the number of oxygen cylinders used rose from 75 per day to 400 within the third wave.

He also said, “In terms of treatment of severe cases, we have seen a gradual increase in the uptake of oxygen during the current wave. Utilisation has increased from 75 cylinders per day at the beginning of this third wave, to over 400 cylinders per day currently,” he said.

“With our modelling suggesting that we may be requiring even more oxygen supply over the next few weeks, we are exploring several ways of increasing our oxygen capacity.

“One of the major pillars of our mitigation strategy for the third wave is vaccination. We are seeing that countries that have vaccinated a large percentage of their population are recording drastic reductions in the numbers of COVID-19 related deaths.

“This is one of the reasons why we have not spared any cost to ensure that the vaccines that have been provided by the federal government are made available to every resident that meets the requirements for the vaccination programme.”

According to the state ministry of health, Lagos has so far confirmed a total of over 70,000 positive cases, with more than 60,000 recoveries.

After COVID scare, UNILAG reopens campus for exams

Published

on

The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has asked its students to resume physically for second semester examinations, which will be held between August 26 and September 26, 2021.
The students were sent home six weeks ago to prevent spread of COVID-19 after a scare on the campus.
The students have been receiving online classes using the institution’s Learning Management System (LMS) since the July 12 closure.
But the institution said it had made a staggered arrangement for students with registered bed spaces to resume in the hostels from August 9, 2021.
Part of the statement read, ”The university has also approved the commencement of the second semester examinations to hold physically from Thursday, 26th August, 2021.
“The examinations will start with the General Studies (GST) Examinations scheduled to hold from Thursday, 26th August, 2021 to Saturday, 28th August, 2021.
“In order to ensure the safety of staff and students during this period, the University will adhere strictly to all COVID-19 protocols.
“Special arrangements have been made with the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) and Gbagada General Hospital for necessary isolation and treatment of any incidence of COVID-19 case during the examinations.
“The university management has approved the schedule of accommodation of bonafide students with allocated bed spaces in the hostels for the second semester examinations as follows: 100 and 200 level students with allocated bed spaces should move into the hostels from Thursday, 26th August 2021 and depart on or before Saturday, 11th September 2021.
“500 level Faculty of Law Students with allocated bed spaces should move into their hostels on Saturday, 28th August 2021 and depart on Sunday, 5th September 2021.”
