NIMR Finds New Malaria Vector In Northern Nigeria

The Nigeria Institute of Medical Research (NIMR), headed by Prof. Babatunde Salako, announced on Monday that it had found a brand-new malaria vector in northern Nigeria named Anopheles stephensi.

Salako revealed that it was the most recent research discovery while speaking with reporters in Lagos during a birthday celebration hosted by his employees.

The tough vector, he claimed, had never been detected anywhere close to West Africa and was extremely difficult to eradicate.

He said that NIMR researchers had made this discovery and that it had implications for Nigeria’s efforts to combat malaria.

According to Salako, NIMR is presently examining vaccinations.

“We have conducted numerous studies on vaccines and are examining the development of vaccines.

In a coalition made up of five organizations, we are developing locally produced vaccines for the world in Nigeria, he stated.

According to Salako, the goal was to enable Nigerian researchers to work on vaccine development from start to finish.

According to him, Nigeria could create its vaccine “if tomorrow we had a new epidemic or sickness, recognized or unknown.”

He said that NIMR was also examining the efficacy, adverse effects, and body’s receptivity to COVID-19 vaccinations.

He said that the institute was examining three COVID vaccinations and that 2,000 Nigerians will be evaluated to determine whether the shots had caused a reaction in the country’s residents.

The event, according to Senior Researcher Samuel Amao, was unheard of.

Amazon claimed that the institute was dealing with a game-changer who was so competent that it didn’t even need to be spoken.

He claimed that Salako was a leader who demonstrated how to do things rather than only telling others what to do.

According to him, NIMR is where prospective researchers should be.
