"COVID-19 patients need no interventions to recover"

Chikwe Ihekweazu

There was controversial submission by the Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu, who claimed that 90% of COVID-19 patients recover without any intervention.

At a media briefing on Wednesday, Ihekweazu  said: “someone infected with coronavirus, usually required support for the body to recover by itself.”

"COVID-19 patients need no interventions to recover"

He said: “We should remember that 90 per cent of these patients recover without any intervention. So, if you take something and say you recovered and that something is why you recovered, it doesn’t quite add up.

“There are very few viruses with a cure. So, you go to a hospital and for COVID-19, you’re given oxygen. Oxygen is not really a treatment; it’s to keep you alive for long enough for you to recover yourself.”

It would be recalled that Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State had claimed that he used somethings that eventually cured him from the the COVID-19 Infection.
