Nigerians have been warned by the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, to prepare for the worst, as the Federal Government works to curtail the spread of Coronavirus in Nigeria.
Ehanire stated this while speaking on Tuesday, during the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
He called on Nigerians and health workers to do their best to know more about the virus, even as President Muhammadu Buhari extends the easing of restrictions in Lagos, Ogun and FCT.
“Yesterday, the President authorized extending easing of restrictions in Lagos, Ogun and FCT by another two weeks. The lockdown in Kano was also extended by two weeks, to address remaining challenges to containing the increasing number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.”
“It is of great importance that we members of the health sector and citizens, endeavour to use this period to dedicate efforts to strive for the best, but also prepare for the worst.”
“As we learn more about coronavirus every day, we must be ready to adjust our strategy, based on knowledge and evidence,” Ehanire said.
