Nigeria is free from Meningitis, FG declares

Nigeria has been declared free from Cerebrospinal Meningitis (CSM), which has taken over 2,000 lives way back from 2016 according to the the Federal Government.

The outbreak has been in consistent reduction for eight weeks and the States affected have had much fewer new cases compared to the past according to the Chief Executive Officer of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu. He confidently said this based on the fact that it has been confirmed that the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) responding to the epidemic has been stepped down drastically.
