The Federal Government of Nigeria on Thursday said it is considering a fresh lockdown on the country as new cases of Covid-19 infections recorded lately continue to rise.
The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19, Sani Aliyu, stated this at a briefing in Abuja. He said the rising Covid infections recorded of recent in the country were concerning 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.
