If you don’t want another lockdown, adhere to the Covid-19 protocols, Dr. Sani Aliyu warns


The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on the Novel Coronavirus Control has warned Nigerians to tread cautiously and adhere to the COVID-19 protocols to prevent another lockdown.

National Coordinator of the PTF, Dr Sani Aliyu, said the only way to prevent a re-introduction of a lockdown is by adhering to the advisories. He said this while speaking on a television programme on Sunday.

“If you don’t want a lockdown, the only way is to make sure we use our facemasks, avoid mass gatherings, avoid people who have respiratory tract infections, sanitise our hands and follow those non- pharmaceutical interventions. The very vaccines that we currently have are those non-pharmaceutical interventions.

“If numbers continue to go up, all options are on the table. There are countries in the world that have been able to control this pandemic simply by following these non-pharmaceutical interventions. They may be inconvenient, but they will not be as difficult as a lockdown,” he said.
