Senior Advocate of Nigeria and human right activist, Mr Femi Falana has called on the Buhari-led government to invite Cuban medical experts to help the country in combating COVID-19 with the aid of the “wonder drug”, Interferon Alfa 2b.
Mr Falana gave this advice during a Channels TV programme, Sunday Politics.
The human right lawyer stated that the drug was used in bringing down the number of COVID-19 cases in China and is currently being used to combat the virus in about 14 countries in the world.
He frowned at the United States of America and Western countries for allowing ideological differences with the Cuban authorities to stand in the way of WHO’s acceptance and approval of the said drug.
So far, Nigeria has 224 COVID-19 cases in different states of the federation with Lagos being the worst hit since the outbreak of the pandemic.
