The Federal Government has warned Nigerians of COVID-19 third wave.
Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, issued the warning on Monday 15th March 2021, during briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.
Mustapha, who is also the Chairman of the task force, noted that some countries were already experiencing the third wave of COVID-19.
He warned that Nigeria was not yet free from the virus despite the availability of COVID-19 vaccines.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the virus is very potent and people still get infected.
“It’s also a fact that the vaccination process has only just begun. It has been reported that some countries are recording a third wave of cases,” Mustapha said.
Nigeria currently has a total of 160,895 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 2,016 deaths and 145,752 recoveries.
These figures were disclosed by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC.
