COVID-19: Keep safe during rainy season, FG warns Nigerians

The Federal Government has asked Nigerians to be watchful of increased cases of coronavirus as the country moves fully into the rainy season.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, gave the warning on Thursday.

Mustapha warned that “the rainy season comes with cold, catarrh, and other COVID-19 mimicking illnesses”.

Speaking at the briefing of the task force in Abuja, Mustapha warned that Nigerians are more prone to contracting COVID-19 than before.

He said, “Ladies and gentlemen, the journey ahead of us all is even more important than the last three months. As you are aware, the main focus is on community engagement and risk communication while not neglecting the need to obey all the guidelines and non-pharmaceutical measures.

“We, therefore, crave your buy-in so that we can collectively become champions in the efforts to wipe out the virus.

“Always remember, that the virus is real, potent, and dangerous. Our relaxed lockdown should never be interpreted to mean otherwise. This point is further underscored by a reported resurgence of the second wave in countries like China and the USA and this should put all of us on alert, knowing that this virus can only be eliminated if we agree to play our part.
