Nigeria has 28,418 samples tested in its ongoing campaign against the deadly COVID-19.

Since February 27 when Nigeria confirmed its index COVID-19 case, the virus has spread with cases confirmed in 34 states and the Federal Capital Territory Abuja.

Meanwhile, the federal government has said that the cure for coronavirus may not be available or ready until towards the end of 2021.

The government said Nigeria, like the rest of the world, have turned to home – grown solutions to treat patients who have tested positive to the virus by trying to abridge the processes of trial for locally made vaccines.

Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Mr Boss Mustapha, disclosed this at the daily briefing of the task force on Tuesday.
