The Secretary to the Government of the Federation and PTF Chairman, Boss Mustapha, said this in Abuja during the briefing of the COVID-19 task force.

The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 said the number of patients hospitalized with the deadly virus is on the increase and the major concern of the government is to have enough oxygen nationwide to attend to emergencies. 

“An enhanced risk communication strategy becomes inevitable when we realise that within the last 24 hours, the world witnessed the largest single day cases of 230,370 while in Nigeria, last week recorded the highest weekly fatality of 70 deaths,” the SGF said.
