The Director-General of NCDC, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu revealed this recently at the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 Media Briefing in Abuja.
According to him, the number of new cases Nigeria has will be determined by our own behaviour and the circumstances that we find ourselves, so everyone should remain cautious.
She added that coronavirus does not respect the young or old, policeman or a demonstrator, therefore no protester should joke with wearing a mask.
His words, “The number of new cases we will have will be determined by our own behaviour and the circumstances that we find ourselves.
“So, right now we are reopening schools; schools by definition means you are going to have more people in confined spaces.
“We have published guidelines together with the Federal Ministry of Education to mitigate those risks. How effectively they are implemented will mean if there will be more transmission or less.
You can see some of the demonstrations happening across the country. The virus doesn’t know whether you are young or old, policeman or a demonstrator; it uses the opportunity to jump from persons to persons.
“So, we will continue to advise everyone, wherever you are, to continue to wear mask, you can still have you voice heard if you are wearing a mask.
“Whatever the circumstances, whether you are managing school or NYSC camps or outside, the important thing is to continue to carry out these public health measures.”
