COVID-19 second wave: Nigerian govt extends eased lockdown by one month

The phase of the eased lockdown has been extended by one month, the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 confirmed on Monday.

PTF chairman, Boss Mustapha, announced this at the weekly briefing in Abuja.

“The PTF is improving on the International Travel Portal to minimise the challenges passengers keep encountering.

“Similarly, it is reviewing the guidelines on the implementation of phase three of the eased lockdown which is due to expire today.

“In view of the fact that our numbers are not abating, all extant measures prescribed in these guidelines are (subject to some modifications) extended by a period of one month with effect from Tuesday, January 26, 2020,” Mustapha said.

Mustapha, who is also the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), added that the effort to access and deploy vaccines was progressing.

He said as already announced by COVAX, the initial 100,000 doses Nigeria was expecting would now arrive in the early weeks of February.
