Second COVID-19 lockdown imminent in Abuja

Worried by a second wave of COVID-19 in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) may likely impose a second lockdown for about two weeks to curtail the spread.

Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 (PTF), at an emergency meeting with FCTA officials, urged the FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello, to reactivate COVID-19 Protocols Enforcement Task Team to stop its violation in the territory.

National Coordinator of PTF, Dr Sani Aliyu, gave the advice during an Emergency FCT COVID-19 Stakeholders Review Meeting in Abuja, yesterday.

The meeting was necessitated by the increasing number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the territory.

Aliyu also emphasised the need for aggressive enforcement of COVID-19 guidelines that would come with clear penalties.

He insisted that mass gathering should be restricted to not than 50 persons, preferably outdoors, and there must be wearing of face masks. He said PTF only recommended that restaurants should be allowed to operate outdoors, but lamented that all restaurants have opened indoors.
