Meanwhile, the Federal Government has warned that deaths from malaria are likely to double by the end of the year due to interruptions in malaria prevention activities like insecticide-treated net campaigns and access to anti-malarial medicines.
It also noted that studies from the Global Fund during the COVID-19 pandemic indicated that malaria services were seriously disrupted on account of countries and their health systems response to the pandemic, lockdowns, restrictions on gatherings of people, transport stoppages and COVID-related stigma.
