The Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC) has responded to a UK backed clinical trial of a drug called dexamethasone for the treatment of COVID-19.
According to the Center, the trial drug is said to reduce the risk of death among patients with Coronavirus, especially those who depend on oxygen.
The NCDC made it clear that the Federal government did not approve the use of such a drug, saying it was not even supported by the world Health Organization.
She said that despite being aware of clinical trials of these drugs in the UK, she would work with” related agencies ” to assess the available data on dexamethasone use. The center said it will keep the public informed of further developments on this issue.

Meanwhile, Earlier it was reported that an American nurse with the name Cherie Antoinette on Twitter said that in eight years of working in the medical profession, the Coronavirus “is the most terrible disease” that she has faced.
She said that whenever they tell patients that they have recovered, they do not inform them of health complications that they may struggle with in the future as a result of the disease.
Cherie hinted that the health problems that can occur after this may be related to a lung transplant, a massive heart attack or a stroke.
The nurse said another possible problem they don’t tell recovered patients about is that they may have to depend on oxygen to live the rest of their lives.
She said the virus is “designed to kill” because it is a highly intelligent disease that attacks everything it needs.
Cherie added that resources to fight the disease may not be available “if we don’t continue to smooth the curve.”
In addition, Abiodun Abraham, a graduate of the University of Lagos, has made a great contribution to the fight against Coronavirus in the country.
A creative person has built a sanitizing tunnel that cleans any remaining bacteria and viruses from those that pass through it.
