We get phone calls From Pranksters almost everyday - NCDC

The Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) has said around 26 percent of crisis calls made to them a week ago were fake.

Executive General of the NCDC, Chikwe Ihekweazu, made this known at the weekly Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 meeting on Monday.

Mr Ihekweazu said; 

"some called to find out about the availability of the controversial COVID-19 drug from Madagascar, "but some said they were only calling to see if the emergency lines were actually functional. Such calls clog the phone lines and make it difficult for individuals with genuine cases to contact the agency."

Many Nigerians However have complained over the unavailability of these lines.

The NCDC further stated;

"If you feel feverish, keep coughing, have a sore throat and difficulty breathing, call on the NCDC for immediate help in 0800 9700 0010"; or send text messages to 08099555577; or WhatsApp message to 07087110839 or via Twitter and Facebook @NCDCgov or,".
