COVID-19: Nigerian Government contemplates lockdown in Lagos, Abuja

The Federal Government is contemplating lockdown in part of Lagos, Abuja, Plateau and Kaduna, as COVID-19 cases shot up in those areas.

National Incident Manager, Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Mukhtar Muhammed, in a interview on Channels TV Sunrise Daily programme lamented the sharp increase in COVID-19 in the affected states.

He said even if there would be a lockdown, it would not be total.

Muhammed said a couple of weeks back, the PTF analysed the data and identified the hot spot local government areas.

He said mostly, the areas affected were the urban local governments in Lagos, Abuja, Kaduna, Plateau, saying that even in most other states, it is the urban areas that were involved.

“So, if we are going to have any restrictions, it will be in these areas. The urban areas are the most affected and that is why we have these super spreaders and that is where we are going to target.

“We have analysed that and we are advising the states based on the data that these are the focused areas where these transmissions are more than the others,” he said.
