COVID-19: FG extends eased lockdown by one month

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Monday announced the extension of phase three of the eased lockdown by one month.

The chairman of PTF, Boss Mustapha, announced this at the weekly briefing of the task force in Abuja.

He said, “The PTF is improving on the International Travel Portal to minimise the challenges passengers keep encountering.

“Similarly, it is reviewing the guidelines on the implementation of phase three of the eased lockdown which is due to expire today.

“In view of the fact that our numbers are not abating, all extant measures prescribed in these guidelines are (subject to some modifications) extended by a period of one month with effect from Tuesday, January 26, 2020.”

Mustapha, who is also the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, said effort to access and deploy vaccines was progressing.

He said as already announced by COVAX, the initial 100,000 doses Nigeria was expecting would now arrive in the early weeks of February.
