The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) says 161 persons tested positive for the COVID-19 on Monday.

The agency said the infections were recorded in four states and the federal capital territory (FCT).

Lagos topped the chart with 153 infections followed by FCT with four. Gombe confirmed two cases while Oyo and Rivers reported one case each.

The NCDC said “74 cases from Lagos State reported on the 11th of July, 2021” were added to Monday’s figure.

No death was reported on Monday, and 37 recoveries were recorded.

So far, the NCDC has confirmed 168,713 cases across the country while 164,476 people have been discharged. However, 2,124 persons have died of the infection.

WHO warns against combining COVID vaccines

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned against combining different brands of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Owing to concerns about blood clots in some vaccines, some countries are already combining different brands with some experts saying it triggers a stronger immune response.

Speaking at a briefing on Monday, Soumya Swaminathan, WHO chief scientist, said there is no sufficient data to support the practice.

“It’s a little bit of a dangerous trend here. We are in a data-free, evidence-free zone as far as mix and match,” Swaminathan was quoted to have said.

“It will be a chaotic situation in countries if citizens start deciding when and who will be taking a second, a third and a fourth dose.”

A handy text for not only lawyers, arbitrators, and judges, but also as major reference material for industry players including architects, builders, civil and structural engineers, quantity surveyors, and project managers, among others.
