Amid a spike in Covid-19 cases across the country, the federal government has hinted at another lockdown, saying it is inevitable as states continue to witness a surge in the number of daily infection.
Speaking during the briefing on Thursday, Boss Mustapha who the chairman of the presidential task force on Covid-19, said the lockdown idea may not be popular, the surge in coronavirus has made it a necessity.
Mustapha said Nigerians are too much “romancing” with the pandemic since the relaxation of lockdown allowing businesses to come back to life.
According to him, efforts of the government towards the pandemic are being sabotaged by Nigerians and this has led to massive community transmission.
Mustapha warned against Nigerians’ care-free attitude and called on everyone to take responsibility by following the guidelines contained in phase two of the lockdown.
“I saw a real romance with COVID-19today. People behaving as if the matter (virus) is over. It is a very serious issue and my appeal to Nigerians listening is that; let us take this thing (virus),” Mustapha warned.
