Tuesday marked the beginning of a new phase of the eased lockdown and the take-off of the new nationwide curfew from 10pm to 4am.
Speaking at the presidential task force (PTF) briefing in Abuja on Tuesday, Boss Mustapha, chairman of the PTF and secretary to the government of the federation, said citizens should not see the lockdown relaxation as an excuse to relax caution against COVID-19.
“The PTF is conscious of the fact there is a high possibility of members of the public seeing the easing as a signal that COVID is gone. On the contrary, COVID-19 is still virulent, dangerous and infectious,” he said.
