The latest update from the NCDC came as the ongoing strike by the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has continued to paralyse critical activities in tertiary hospitals across the country.

Resident doctors, who are in training to become consultants, are pivotal to frontline healthcare in Nigeria as they constitute a larger share of physicians in Nigeria’s tertiary hospitals.
