Iranian top military outfit, the Revolutionary Guards Corps Airspace Commander, Ali Hajizadeh had claimed that the country’s missile depots were scattered around various parts of the country and are held in bunkers hidden 500 meters (1640 feet) underground in the state’s mountains.

The IRGC has claimed for the past six years that it has built three underground “missile cities,” showing tunnels packed with solid-fuel rockets, as well as mid-range ballistic missiles.

The assassination of IRGC Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani has led to a rise in tensions across the Middle East.

Following last week’s ballistic missile attack, Iranian generals warned that “a tsunami will sweep away all US bases.”

NCDC reveals why Nigeria’s COVID-19 cases are low

Published

By

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has disclosed that the low number of the COVID-19 cases in the country is due to the lesser amount of samples collected across the states.

Chikwe Ihekweazu, NCDC Director-General, stated this during the Presidential Task briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja on Thursday.

Ihekweazu, who was represented by Mrs. Elsie Ilori, NCDC Head of Surveillance and Epidemiology Department, stated that the testing labs were underutilized because the states were not collecting enough samples for the laboratory to test.

“As mentioned earlier since the Sallah break we have had some of our confirmed cases have been very low compared to what we’ll be having before, but this isn’t because the numbers are getting low but because we are not collecting enough samples.

“If you notice, the number of samples collected during Salah was very low, and we believe it was because of the festival season some labs even went on break, it should not have been.

“So we are working with the states to quickly address this so that we do not have this kind of situation again,” he said.

According to the Ihekweazu, we sometimes know when we look at stigmatization, people say they do not want to go to testing sites because they’ll be stigmatized.

“But I mean, this isn’t something to be ashamed of, we have just had an example amongst us, it can happen to anybody.

So, please let us come out and be tested.”
