Nigeria may witness second wave of COVID-19, PTF discloses
The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has charged Nigerians to anticipate a possible second wave of the outbreak of the virus.
This was disclosed by the Chairman of the PTF and Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF Boss Mustapha on Monday during a briefing in Abuja.
According to him, no nation is guaranteed immunity against resurgence of the virus.
He advised Nigerians to be mindful of its possibility, pointing out the only cover is strict adherence to guidelines and protocols.
“The PTF is glad that the economy is opening up the more, but warns that as we continue to study developments in Europe and other parts of the world, no nation can be said to be immune to a possible second wave if the guidelines and protocols are not adhered to strictly. Nigerians need to anticipate this and prepare. Our hope and prayers are that it shall never happen.
“For our proper information and guidance, the picture from around the world can be summarised as follows. Over the last few days, global cases crossed the 37 million mark. In the UK, cases have been on the increase, and the 5th highest number of daily cases was recorded on Sunday 11th (12,872).
