President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday warned Nigerians to adhere strictly to all protocols recommended by health authorities to curtail the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to avoid the issuance of a fresh lockdown.
President Buhari, who stated this on Thursday via his verified Twitter handle, said compliance with COVID-19 protocols by all Nigerians is crucial to avert a second wave of the pandemic in the country.
“Looking at the trends in other countries, we must do all we can to avert a second wave of COVID-19 in Nigeria.
“We must make sure that our cases, which have gone down, do not rise again. Our economy is too fragile to bear another round of lockdown,” @MBuhari tweeted.
Recall that Theplebisciteworld.com early edition news reported that the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control ( NCDC) stated that four CONVID19 related deaths and 147 new infections were recorded in the country from 11 states and the Federal Capital Territory ( FCT).
