Staff members of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) have been ordered to submit themselves for the COVID-19 test.

The directive was contained in a circular issued by the FCTA Health and Human Services Secretariat.

The circular, we gather, indicated that the directive followed the Permanent Secretary’s order during an FCTA management meeting in February that the health and Human Services Secretariat should conduct a COVID-19 test for all the staff of FCTA.

A team of FCT health workers were, thereafter, stationed at the FCTA secretariat and other designated locations from Monday, March 1, to Friday, March, 5 for the exercise. It is also gathered that during the pendency of the pandemic, FCTA workers are expected to submit themselves for the COVID-19 test whenever directed to do so.

According to the latest data from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), the FCT has the second-highest confirmed cases of COVD-19 infections, after Lagos State.

While the FCT has 19,470 confirmed cases, 3,728 active cases, 15,587 recoveries and 155 deaths. So far, Nigeria has conducted 1,684,305 COVID-19 tests.
