The Federal Government has come out to declare that no fresh lockdown has been announced despite confirmation of a fresh wave of COVID-19.
Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, gave this clarification, NAN reports.
The Minister explained that the Presidential Task Force, PTF directives, and position on Coronavirus at its briefing on Monday did not mean a partial or total lockdown as reported.
According to Mohammed, the Government is only taking precautionary measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in civil service and public gatherings.
“The Federal Government has not declared a fresh lockdown.
“What we have done is that we have simply reiterated the old protocols and asked federal workers on Level 12 and below to stay at home, and they will still receive their salaries.
“Therefore, there is no fresh lockdown, and the issue of hardship and economy meltdown does not arise,’’ Mohammed added.
