The Presidential Task Force on the coronavirus pandemic has alerted on what it called ‘mass transportation’ of people out of Lagos State in trucks, thereby worsening the spread of the disease.
The National Coordinator of the Task Force, Dr Sani Aliyu, disclosed this during the daily media briefing of the task force in Abuja on Thursday.
The PTF said that COVID-19 transmission is being exacerbated by people moving across state borders, noting in particular the mass transportation of people out of Lagos State in trucks.
He therefore appealed to Nigerians to take federal and some states governments’ lockdown order seriously, noting the fight to beat back to pandemic in the country depends largely on how much attention and respect the public give to the guidelines issued by the PTF. (Text and photo courtesy Tribune)
