The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 on Tuesday reveals what will cause another lockdown in Nigeria.
It said that the level of compliance of citizens will determine if a fresh lockdown will be imposed or not. Read another update on fresh lockdown.
Coordinator of the PTF on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, stated this while featuring on TVC on Tuesday.
Aliyu insisted that no decision has been made on a fresh lockdown. “The behaviour of the public when it comes to these rules matters.
We have countries abroad that have very strict non-pharmaceutical intervention measures and everybody follows it.
“The flights are coming in, schools are open, churches are open, and they don’t have COVID-19 problems because everybody observes the rules.
“We definitely don’t want a lockdown and because we don’t want to lock down, we need to make sure we do everything we can to prevent ourselves from reaching that state where the government will have to take action,” he said.
