The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID19 has given a stern warning for an alleged neglect of non-pharmaceutical protocols by Nigerians, and also for other measures targeted at curtailing the spread of the COVID19 pandemic in the country.
Mustapha who gave the warning said that, there seemed to be an increase in neglect for basic non-pharmaceutical measures which have been proven to be very successful.
According to him, social distancing and gatherings are beginning to return to the pre-COVID era.
He also added that Nigerians no longer make use of the face mask properly, and that face masks have now been turned to chin mask.
The chairman however, called for Nigerians to be vigilant in order to prevent any form of a second wave of the pandemic just as some countries in Europe are beginning to face.
According to him, he said:
“Facemasks have now been turned into chin masks, social distancing and gatherings are returning to the pre-COVID era, we cannot afford the importation of the virus.
We appeal strongly to all Nigerians to persuade their relations arriving in Nigeria to self-isolate upon arrival, as required and test on day seven as prescribed."
