PTF Calls For Caution Amid Declining Cases, Says Covid-19 Is Still Very Potent
By Chinenye Festus:-
Presidential Task Force (PTF) Chairman on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Boss Mustapha, has warned Nigerians to remain vigilant despite the decrease in the number of cases recorded in the last four months.
Mustapha gave the caution on Monday at the briefing of the task force in Abuja. “The PTF still urges caution and vigilance on the declining numbers because the virus is still potent and very dangerous.”
“For us in Nigeria, the last three weeks have shown a slowdown in the number of confirmed cases. Indeed, in the last four months of testing, the lowest daily figure of confirmed cases (138) was reported on August 30.”
The SGF said despite the nation’s enhanced testing capacity, the number of samples collected for testing have not been encouraging.
He, therefore, urged states to expand the scope of their sample collection In line with efforts at intensifying Nigeria’s targeted testing strategy.
