The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Dr. Sani Aliyu has revealed why the country is likely to witness a second lockdown.

Sani blamed the proposed lockdown on the fact that citizens were not adhering to the advisories.

According to him, if the numbers continue to go up, the government will strongly consider another lockdown.

Sani was quoted as saying: “If numbers continue to go up, all options are on the table. They may be inconvenient, but they will not be as difficult as a lockdown.

“We are talking holistically here. All I can say is that 33 people died of COVID-19 in the last one week. Are we saying those people died for nothing? We have just recorded 6,000 cases in one week, far more than we ever recorded.”

He said that the only way to prevent a re-introduction of a lockdown is by adhering to the advisories by citizens.

The PTF has continued to expressed concerns that Nigerians have continued to shun the prescribed protocols despite the second wave of the virus biting hard.
