The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Monday urged Nigerians to do everything possible to avoid a second lockdown in Nigeria.
The Chairman of PTF, Boss Mustapha, made the call at a press briefing in Abuja.
Mustapha, who is also the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, said this can be done by complying with the protocols released by government.
He said the government was making progress with the Case Management under the National Response which continues to receive the support of the private sector in the delivery of medical oxygen to the various facilities.
Mustapha said, “Let me remind you that the pandemic is raging and all tiers of Government and citizens must keep their hands-on-deck.
“We are in a difficult situation in which a balance must continue to be struck between lives and livelihood.
“We are considering all options while hoping that broad cooperation will be received.
“We must do everything possible to avoid a second lockdown in Nigeria.”
