    Minister of Science and technology, Ogbonnaya Onu speaks on the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) on March 8, 2020. The Federal Government (FG) says Nigerian scientists are on the verge of producing a cure for the coronavirus. According to the FG, a committee from the Nigeria Academy of Science has been constituted to verify the claims of four scientists who say they have found the cure for Coronavirus and Lassa Fever. Speaking on the matter, the minister of science and technology, Doctor Ogbonnaya Onu insisted that there are strong indications that Nigeria is about to record a major breakthrough for the cure of the ravaging diseases. Doctor Onu said the government is offering thirty-six million naira (N36,000,000) as an incentive to Nigerian scientists to enable them research into the cure for the virus. Meanwhile, the WHO has urged all countries to prepare for caring for patients severely sickened by the deadly new coronavirus by stocking up on ventilators. The UN health agency stressed in its latest situation report on COVID-19 that “oxygen therapy is a major treatment intervention for patients with severe COVID-19.” But WHO noted that the virus appears to particularly hit those over the age of 60 and people already weakened by other illnesses.
