The Federal Government says 50% of COVID-19 fatalities recorded in the country die at home.
The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.
He also stated that 50% of COVID-19 cases recorded in Nigeria are asymptomatic.
The statement reads in part: “Ehanire said that findings from the analysis of the deaths show that nearly half of them died at home.
“Of those who died at home, about 50 percent did not show any symptoms.
“This underscores my earlier emphasis on the need for those who test positive to report for treatment.”
Meanwhile, the National Hospital Abuja, on Friday said the Ministry of Health and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control had reviewed the guidelines on discharge of asymptomatic COVID-19 patients in isolation for over 45 days.
