After Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, the Director General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) cried out that the centre was running short of test kits to cater for expanding testing, Nigerians have now reached out to help.

Ihekweazu tweeted on Sunday: ”We’re desperately looking for more RNA extraction kits as we expand #COVID19 testing.

”Product: Total viral RNA extraction kits (preferably spin column and with a lysis buffer). Manufacturers: Qiagen, ThermoFischer, SeeGene, Inqaba, LifeRiver etc.”

“RNA a polymeric molecule essential in various biological roles in coding, decoding, regulation and expression of genes.

By Monday, Ihekweazu tweeted again: ”very grateful to everyone who reached out to solve this challenge with us. Our support to each other, even when done quietly, will enable us pull through.

“One day, we will tell the story of this response in full. For now, we keep pushing”.
