“Expect Massive COVID-19 Infections In Two Weeks” - Federal Government Tells Nigerians

“Expect Massive COVID-19 Infections In Two Weeks” - Federal Government Tells Nigerians (Updated: 2 years ago)


The Federal govt has revealed that in the next two weeks, there would be an increase in COVID-19 infections in the country.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment.

The warning was issued by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha yesterday.

He condemned the careless act of travelers failing to present themselves for Coronavirus tests upon arriving the country.

The SGF said statistics from the nation’s records showed that only one out of three passengers had shown up for the in-country test they signed up for before arrival.

He said;

“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.”
