Nigerian govt to impose fresh nationwide lockdown as COVID-19 cases continue to rise

The Federal Government has said it will be left with no option other than to impose a fresh lockdown in the country if the number of COVID-19 infections continues to spike.

The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, stated this on Friday during a media briefing in Abuja.

Aliyu said the rising Coronavirus infections were a source of concern and might require a fresh lockdown.

He said,

“If these numbers continue to go up and we start having significant deaths, we will have no option. If we do not want to lock down, now is the time to make sure that we follow the non-pharmaceutical interventions.”

 

Also, the PTF Chairman and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, who spoke earlier, said,

“The Presidential Task Force is very concerned about the increasing daily numbers that we are recording.

“On the 6th of January 2021, we recorded 1,664 infections. This is yet another all-time high in Nigerian and we must all take full responsibility through compliance and vigilance.”

Everyone needs to be conscious of the effects of the virus and work hard to prevent it. It is encouraging to follow the guidelines in order to be hale and hearty
