Nigeria Plans Survey to See How Many Had Covid-19

The United States and Nigeria’s Centres for Disease Control are to conduct a household survey to determine the extent of coronavirus infections in Nigeria.

People in four states including the biggest city, Lagos, will be asked if they wish to volunteer in the research which will include an antibody blood test to find out who has had the virus.

The exercise aims to help health professionals understand the transmission patterns and to find out how many people with the virus have shown no symptoms.
