COVID-19 might not be the last pandemic the world would witness, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has predicted. 

WHO Country Representative in Nigeria, Dr Walter Kazadi Mulombo, stated this during the ninth General Meeting and Scientific Conference of the Epidemiological Society of Nigeria held in Port Harcourt.

Mulombo noted that COVID-19 has provided Nigeria and the global community an opportunity to strengthen immunisation, build capacity of health workers and strengthen disease surveillance.

“COVID-19 pandemic has taught us a great lesson on preparedness.

“It is not yet over. It may not likely be the last pandemic. Therefore, we must sustain the tempo,” Mulombo said.

As at Monday morning, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) reported that the country has 174,315 confirmed cases and had recorded 2,149 deaths, in what may be a third wave of infections of the deadly virus.
