As governments across levels channel efforts against the coronavirus scourge, the presidential task force on Covid-19 said things may dive down to worse as more fatalities may be recorded in the coming weeks.

Speaking with pressmen, Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government and chairman of the presidential task force on Covid-19, stated this in his daily briefing to Nigerians as virus ravages the country.

He said Presently, Nigeria’s Covid-19 total infection has hit 20244 with 6,879 recoveries and 518 deaths.

Mustapha has now attributed the spike in the number of cases to the large scale testing which the country has embarked upon.

The PTF chairman, however, warned against the inevitable danger ahead, saying Nigeria may get into panic mode soon.

FG said large scale testing embarked upon is responsible for the spike in the number of Covid-19 cases recently.

‘’The figures you see now are a reflection of the testing capacity of the country. We have ramped up testing. From just about two centres, we now have over 30 and so, the results are the figures you see now, the outcome of which will be an increase in the number of casualties in the next three weeks, when they’ll start manifesting.

“There’ll be pandemonium and we might get into a panic mode. Sadly, we are still in the first wave and the figures will not abate, because the attitudes of a majority of the people do not suggest that we want the figures to abate,” Mustapha explained.

He also called on Nigerians to support the federal government’s efforts against the Covid-19 pandemic.
