Minimise Transmission, PTF Asks Nigerians
The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has asked Nigerians to minimise the risk of transmitting the virus in the country.

PTF Coordinator, Dr Sani Aliyu made this call in Abuja on Monday while briefing reporters.

He also called for the protection of young people especially as schools resume after months of shutdown occasioned by COVID-19 in the country.

“We must also take responsibility to minimise the risk of transmission, protect our young people and their families for the schools to be able to operate effectively,” he said.

“Each of us has their own part to play. It is definitely time for Nigeria to get moving and in this regard, we have to support our students.

“We also have to protect our schools because by protecting our schools and educational system, we also protect our future.”

Although the COVID-19 figures in Nigeria has been on a decline in recent months, the country has recorded 163 more cases of the virus on Sunday while discharging 24 patients that have recovered from the infections.
