On measles, he said impacts of COVID-19 continue to be felt across several other areas including the increase in the risk of measles and a probable increase in yellow fever outbreaks due to delayed planned vaccination campaigns.

”We recorded 18,577 confirmed cases, and 190 deaths as at week 35 in 36 states and the FCT and there are 40 LGAs with the active outbreak.

”We will continue to support state responses to measles outbreaks,” he said.

He said that the NCDC has continued to record confirmed COVID-19 cases in Nigeria, just as in several other parts of the world.
