Presidential Task Force Laments Flagrant Disregard for Protocols

...Set to Announce Date for Commencement of Domestic Flight

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 Boss Mustapha has said non-compliance has been largely fuelled by scepticism and ignorance about the disease as stigmatization has further impacted on the willingness of people to come out to seek help and even tell their stories.

 

Mustapha who made this known at the National Press Briefing said the PTF is expected to submit its assessment of the first three months of waging war against coronavirus pandemic to President Muhammadu Buhari next week.

 

Our correspondent Nathan Williams reports that the Aviation Minister, Hadi Sirika said a date for the commencement of domestic flight will be announced next week as dry run test would be conducted in Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja as part of the preparation to commence flight operation.

 

The Minister of Health Dr Osagie Ehanire however noted that community transmission has resulted in the high number of confirmed cases with the challenge that in some states, the facilities for case management may become overwhelmed hence the need for community support centres to strengthen the capacity of the health system at community level.
