FG warns against massive COVID19 infections in next 2 weeks
FG warns against massive COVID19 infections in next 2 weeks due to the negligence of travellers who failed to get themselves tested for coronavirus
This warning was issued by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha
He then went on to condem the careless act of travellers failing to get themselves tested for Coronavirus tests upon arriving the country.
“The PTF at the last briefing cautioned on the need to avoid complacency on account of the low number of infections published daily and the possibility of a second wave. That advice was premised on the fact that risk perception remains very low and sample collection has been on the decline.”
Mustapha also expressed fear of the recent governorship elections in Edo and Ondo States as well as the #EndSARS nationwide protests triggering an increased Coronavirus infection in the country. He said;
“The PTF is highlighting these issues repeatedly because we remain at risk of importation, having opened our airspace and massive spread as a result of the protests. The next week or two remain critical.
“The PTF similarly announced sanctions as a consequence of any infraction.
Having observed serious non-compliance to the level of 65%, the need has arisen to activate the sanctions, including the suspension of the passports of such defaulting individuals for a period of six months minimum.”
