The Secretary to the government of the federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha has disclosed that the country is far from seeing the end of Coronavirus.
Mustapha who expressed worry over the increasing number of COVID-19 patients at the daily press briefing of the presidential task force on COVID-19 today April 20, appealed to Nigerians to comply with the lockdown directive.
“Given the increase in the number of confirmed cases in the last week, the PTF remains conscious of the fact that we are far from the end of this outbreak in Nigeria. We, therefore, must focus even more vigorously on our strategy of increasing testing, isolating confirmed cases, following up with contacts of cases and managing confirmed cases to recovery.
“The significant increase in the number of cases and distribution across states underscore the importance of remaining focused as citizens and as a nation because of the enormity of the challenges ahead.
“This is the time for all hands to be on deck so that the PTF can improve on its delivery. We must all come together because we face a common enemy and potential risk. We must flatten the curve at all cost and restore our country to full activity.”
