The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has come out to express concern over the mental state of survivors of COVID-19 in the country.

Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the task force, recently revealed this in Abuja at the joint national briefing of the taskforce.

According to him, reports from researches around the world regarding the state of psychiatric health of survivors have boosted plans for in-country response under the treatment and post-treatment regimes.

He added that the number of cases has been fluctuating lately and that is a sign that the virus is still with us.

His words, “The PTF is still very much concerned about the mental health of survivors of the COVID-19 virus.

“In this regard, the PTF is following reports from researches around the world regarding the state of psychiatric health of survivors and has intensified plans for in-country response under the treatment and post-treatment regimes,”

“The USA has been recording over 100,000 cases daily in recent times and the rate of fatalities is increasing in the UK and other European countries.

“Five countries (USA, Brazil, India, Mexico and UK) account for 53 percent (685,176) of global deaths. On the African continent, Morocco, South Africa, and Tunisia reported the highest cases in the last 24 hours.

“The number of cases has been fluctuating lately and that is an indication that we are not out of the woods yet.

“The cases in Lagos where multiple infections were recorded in two schools are typical examples of the danger of reopening institutions without the required measures.

“We must all rally round each other to stop this pandemic from destroying our lives and economy.

“The PTF believes strongly that now is the time to raise the tempo of not just our national response but also our preparedness for a new wave of the pandemic or any other epidemic for that matter.

“For example, it has been strongly observed that places of worship, gatherings, and other events have dumped the use of face masks and adherence to other NPIs.”
