We Will Impose Fresh Nationwide Lockdown If COVID-19 Cases Continue To Rise - PTF Says
The Federal Government has said it will be left with no alternative than to force a new lockdown in the nation if the quantity of COVID-19 contaminations keeps on spiking.
The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVIF-19, Sani Aliyu, expressed this on Friday during a media preparation in Abuja.
Aliyu said the rising Coronavirus diseases was a wellspring of concern and may require a new lockdown.
He stated, "If these numbers keep on going up and we begin having critical passings, we will have no choice. On the off chance that we would prefer not to secure, this is the ideal opportunity to ensure that we follow the non-drug intercessions."
Likewise, the PTF Chairman and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, who talked prior, stated, "The Presidential Task Force is worried about the expanding day by day numbers that we are recording.
"On the sixth of January 2021, we recorded 1,664 contaminations. This is one more unsurpassed high in Nigerian and we should all assume full liability through consistence and watchfulness."[NewsNaira]
