The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has issued an alert to Nigerians about a third wave of the epidemic, which is reportedly affecting several nations.
Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the PTF, issued the alert at the taskforce’s press conference in Abuja on Monday, March 15.
Mustapha, who observed that Nigeria’s bed occupancy had dropped to 1.22 percent, with 13, 245 active cases as of March 14, 2021, said that certain countries are seeing a third wave of cases even as vaccinations are being administered.
“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.”
