PTF Blames Reopening Of Schools For Continued School Closure

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has said travels, reopening of schools, businesses and religious centres contributed to the rise in coronavirus cases in Nigeria.

Chairman of the PTF and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, made this known on Monday during a media briefing in Abuja.

He said, “It is however very instructive to stress that factors that have contributed to rise in numbers from late November 2020 included increased local and international travels, business and religious activities, reopening of schools without strict compliance with COIVID-19 safety measures.

“The full import of the fore-going is to press further on the need for us all to elevate the level of our vigilance and compliance with the recommended non-pharmaceutical interventions.”
