COVID-19: FG To Impose Fresh Nationwide Lockdown Over Rising Cases

Sani Aliyu

The Federal Government of Nigeria has said that it will be left with no other option than to impose another lockdown in the country if the number of COVID-19 cases continues to spike.

This was stated by the National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, during a media briefing in Abuja.

Aliyu noted that the rising Coronavirus infections was a source of major concern and might require a fresh lockdown.

“If these numbers continue to go up and we start having significant deaths, we will have no option. If we do not want to lock down, now is the time to make sure that we follow the non-pharmaceutical interventions,” he said. 

Meanwhile, according to a recent statement from the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, the PTF has been very lately concerned about the spike in COVID-19 cases being recorded.

The statement indicated 1,644 recorded infections on January 6, 2020, as this only clearly show the spike in recorded cases.
