There might be a fresh lockdown in Nigeria as covid-19 continues to rise, Federal Government hints.
National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVIF-19, Sani Aliyu, revealed on Friday during a media briefing in Abuja.
The rise in number of Coronavirus infections has forced the government into thinking of a fresh lockdown.
“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.”
Still on that, 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.”
