Dr Sani Aliyu made this assertion during his daily briefing of the taskforce committee on Monday evening April 20th, he said that there is no evidence to prove that persons have gotten infected after being exposed to the dead bodies of a COVID-19 victim.

“I would like to further clarify the issue of COVID-19 and burial processes. Contrary to what is on social media, the late chief of staff’s body was properly prepared for burial, according to the NCDC guidelines and the Islamic faith.
The bodies of persons with COVID-19,  as stated by the WHO guidelines and I quote, ‘Except in cases of viral haemorrhagic fever and cholera, dead bodies are generally not infectious.
To date, there is no evidence of persons having become infected from exposure to the bodies of persons who have died of  COVID-19.’” Aliyu said
