The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 National Coordinator, Boss Mustapha have called for caution amongst stakeholders, citing how such haste escalated the pandemic management situation in some other countries.

Mustapha said: “It is in the above context that the PTF appreciates the on-going calls for re-opening of the education sector and indeed some sub-nationals are already making preparations for such.

“Whilst the PTF does not discourage making such preparations, we need to be guided by experiences from countries such as Germany, France, the United States and the UK where opening of schools in some cities led to an increase in confirmed cases and fatalities”.

He further said that more sectors of the economy may soon be reopened, especially as the nation would be entering a new phase of the eased lockdown.

Mustapha said the PTF would present its recommendations to President Muhammadu Buhari this week, which will determine the next phase in the national response.

He noted that the last three weeks had shown a slowdown in the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the country, noting that, in the last four months of testing, the lowest daily figure of confirmed cases (138) was reported on Sunday, August 30.

He called caution and vigilance on the declining numbers as he noted that the virus is still potent and very dangerous.
