Mulombo noted that Coronavirus has provided Nigeria and the global community an opportunity to strengthen immunisation, build capacity of health workers and strengthen disease surveillance, according to The Guardian.
Mulombo said: ''COVID-19 pandemic has taught us a great lesson on preparedness.
“It is not yet over. It may not likely be the last pandemic. Therefore, we must sustain the tempo.''
