COVID-19: Phase 2 lockdown extended by one week-PTF



The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has extended the phase two lockdown by one week from the initial one month extension.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation and chairman of the PTF-COVID-19, Boss Mustpha, revealed this at the daily briefing on COVID-19 on Monday in Abuja.

“The PTF has continued to evaluate the developments as well as the level of compliance nationwide.

“(It) has regrettably come to the inevitable conclusion that majority of Nigerians irrespective of status, creed and level of education continue to live in denial on the virulent nature of the virus and consistently breach the  guidelines and non-pharmaceutical measures put in place.


“We informed you two weeks ago that the process of submitting the 6th Interim Report and recommendations for next steps had commenced.

“The PTF has reached advanced stages of the process. It has also considered that due to the upcoming Sallah (Eid El-Kabir) festivities which coincides with the expiration of the current phase, it would be prudent to extend by one week, from 29th July, 2020 till Thursday 6th August, 2020.

“It has accordingly secured permission to retain the existing guidelines till that date.”

Mustapha further called on Muslims and all Nigerians to observe all measures put in place to reduce the curve of the pandemic.
