Agbolade Omowole, founder Longevity Nigeria has averred that countries need to prioritize public health post COVID-19.
According to him:” National health systems are the first line of defense against outbreaks. Yet they are often under-funded, leading to major gaps in the health workforce, infrastructure, health information systems and supply chains. Many countries that successfully contained their national COVID-19 outbreaks, such as South Korea, had previously addressed weaknesses revealed by the 2003 SARS outbreak “.
Omowole’s Longevity Nigeria, a health based longevity activist group in Nigeria is set to host a virtual summit on How to Improve Public Health Post COVID-19.
