It’s no longer a news that Nigeria has entered a second wave of coronavirus infections, as officially announced by the Health Minister Osagie Ehanire.
The number of COVID-19 cases detected in the country in the past two weeks indicates that a second wave of the outbreak has begun, said Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation and chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
“We are in a potentially difficult phase of the COVID-19 resurgence. Accessing the hope offered by the arrival of the vaccine is still some time ahead,” he said.
Health Minister Osagie Ehanire had earlier announced that the government would receive 20 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine by January 2021.
More than 80,000 cases of COVID-19 have been diagnosed in Nigeria so far, while over 1,201 people have died from the virus and over 70,000 patients recovered.
Currently, thousands new cases of COVID-19 is being recorded in Nigeria everyday. So strange!
According to the president in a nationwide broadcast 24hrs ago, he vowed to extend the mandate of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 till the end of March 2021, bearing in mind the new surge in the number of cases, and the bid for vaccines.
“Nigeria cannot afford to lose the gains of the last nine months. I have critically evaluated the situation and remain convinced that urgent measures have to be taken to halt the spread of the Coronavirus and the attendant fatalities.
There is also the need to speedily and strategically access and administer the COVID vaccine in a safe, effective and timely manner. This is an important obligation that we owe Nigerians as we go into year 2021, and it must be carried out through an efficient machinery”.
