The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has revealed what is causing the massive increase in the rate of covid-19 infections.

PTF claimed that churches, travels, reopening of schools, businesses and religious centres, are the cause.

It should be noted that there  are currently over 100,000 confirmed infections in the country.

Chairman of the PTF and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, lamented the increase  during Monday’s media briefing in Abuja

“It is, however, very instructive to stress that factors that have contributed to rise in numbers from late November 2020 included increased local and international travels, business and religious activities, reopening of schools without strict compliance with COVID-19 safety measures,” Mustapha said.

It will be recalled that the federal government admitted  it would have no choice than to impose a fresh lockdown in the country if the number of COVID-19 infections continue to spike.
