The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 under the Federal Government has urged Nigerian citizens not to conduct usual Christmas festivities such as carol services this year 2020.
According to the Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu, said during the weekly briefing of the task force in FCT, Abuja, on Monday.
He said, Christmas carols travels, and other gatherings during the festive season could turn out to be “super spreaders” of the Covdi-19.
Chikwe said, “This is really to re-emphasize the call by the PTF that many of the traditional meetings that we engage in at this time of the year, whether they are Christmas carols or festivals, trips, family gatherings, each of those could end up being a super spreader event.
“So, we must take this into consideration as we make our choices.”
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control NCDC on Monday night announced 145 new cases of Coronavirus in the country.
The new infections take the number of cases in the country to 67,557.
