Nigeria’s response to coronavirus is remarkable —UN Secretary-General

The United Nations (UN) Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, has commended Nigeria’s response to the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

Speaking at a briefing in New York, on Thursday, he singled out Nigeria as one of the developing countries that have “shown a remarkable capacity to respond to the coronavirus,” says he was quite impressed.

According to him: “I have to say this; some of these developing countries have shown a remarkable capacity to respond.

I was quite impressed to see, for instance, Nigeria putting in place and immediately establishing a hospital. And I saw difficulties in countries that are much more developed to do quickly the same.”
