The Director- General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Ghebreyesus, made this announcement.

The other five African countries listed by the DG of the WHO include Egypt, Kenya, Senegal, South Africa and Tunisia.

Currently, the rate at which Nigerians fly to the overseas to get trained or further their education especially in the medical field is increasing yearly. Country like Canada accommodates many Nigerian youths who are into one degree or the other.

Other countries are not left out, it is very rare not to see Nigerians in almost all the countries of the world. Nigerians studying abroad are reportedly doing very well in the medical field. This should be one of the reasons why Nigeria was selected to produce the vaccine as most of their scientists got their knowledge overseas.
