“90% of Coronavirus Patients Recovered without any Intervention” - NCDC

“90% of Coronavirus Patients Recovered without any Intervention” - NCDC (Updated: 2 years ago)


The Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu has claimed that 90% of COVID-19 patients recover without any intervention.

Ihekweazu revealed this during a media briefing on Wednesday.

He made the remarks while responding to a question on how the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, recovered in less than one week.

According to him, someone infected with coronavirus, usually required support for the body to recover by itself.

“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,” he said.
