‎Mustapha said, “Globally, the world continues to pursue the search for a vaccine with over 1,000 trials on-going and different claims of levels of success.

“We note particularly, the announcement by the President of Russia on the breakthrough in the development of a vaccine even as we study the developments.

“Fighting the pandemic successfully will take a global effort and Nigeria will not be left out whenever and where ever progress is made.

“However, the health and safety of Nigerians will always remain our priority in the pursuit of a solution.”

The SGF said ‎the Federal Government will remain focused on propagating the use of proven avoidance methods to break the transmission of the virus and effective case management to care for and treat infected persons. ‎
