“The present infection surge in certain European countries, who already had vaccination over 60 per cent, is proof that full vaccination is no reason to drop our guard or a guarantee against infection.

DAILY POST reports that the minister also said that bed occupancy for the week under review was 16.17 per cent in 86 isolation wards, and oxygen was widely available with oxygen concentrators as a backup.

“There is no surge in demand. A review of oxygen situation in 125 treatment centres is ongoing, to also identify non-functional plants for repair.”

According to Dr. Ehanire majority of patients (67 per cent) on admission in isolation wards had co-morbidities like diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and other non-communicable diseases adding that these diseases are determinants of the severity of COVID-19 illness.

“The same finding has been made in some Eastern European countries where severe waves of COVID-19 are currently raging.

“Despite palpable fatigue among citizens on adherence to COVID-19 preventive protocols, I have hardly encountered any person who didn’t have a face mask. Jamb Result

”Oddly enough, they would leave their mask on their pocket or handbag and wear it on demand.

“Others wear it on their chin. The mask is not helpful anywhere except it covers the mouth and nose.

”Global trends suggest that public health measures like masks and social distancing are still very useful protection against infection.”
