The National Coordinator of the presidential Task Force (PTF), Sani Aliyu on COVID-19 has announced that the possibility of being infected with coronavirus is at a higher scale than before in Nigeria.
It was during the PTF briefing in Abuja on Thursday June18 that he made that known to the public. The PTF coordinator said Government is working with security agents to make sure that there is strict compliance with safety measures.
Sani Aliyu said that;
“The PTF continues to be very concerned about the issue of compliance. As you are aware, we are here to push for the containment of COVID-19 in the country through data-driven medical advisories.
“The fact that we are receiving many reports on the flouting of the guidelines, the hint individuals, groups and organisations is simply unacceptable.
“As I said in the past, COVID-19 is far from over globally, neither is it over in Nigeria.
“There’s no doubt that a lot of community transmission is happening and it continues to increase across the states. Now more than ever before, if you go out, you’re more likely to get COVID-19 than before.
“Your risk of acquiring COVID-19 because of the numbers we have now is more than three, four weeks or five weeks ago when we had a lockdown, so there really isn’t any room or relaxation at this point.”
“It wasn’t because COVID-19 has gone and it wasn’t because we should be more relaxed in terms of our prevention measures.
