PTF warns Nigerians of a third wave of Coronavirus
The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has warned Nigerians of a third wave of the disease which is currently being experienced in some countries.
Secretary to the Government of the Federation and PTF Chairman, Boss Mustapha gave the warning at the press briefing of the taskforce in Abuja on Monday March 15.
Mustapha who noted that Nigeria’s bed occupancy reduced to 1.22 percent while active cases stood at 13, 245 as at March 14, 2021, averred that some countries are recording a third wave of cases even while carrying out a vaccination process.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the virus is very potent and people still get infected. It’s also a fact that the vaccination process has only just begun. It has been reported that some countries are recording a third wave of cases.
“The PTF will like to caution Nigerians on home-based care as there may not be enough facilities and personnel to manage patients in times of emergencies.”
