Plateau now epicentre of COVID-19 in Nigeria… P‎TF


The Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 ‎has said the epicentre of the coronavirus pandemic has now shifted to Plateau State.

Before now Lagos, Kano, Ogun and Oyo states had been the epicentre of the pandemic in the country.

Chairman of the PTF and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Boss Mustapha, who disclosed this at a press briefing on Thursday, also noted that although Lagos has reached the  peak of the pandemic, it was not yet time to relax.

He said, “‎As we enter the last week of this extended eased lock-down phase, and note the impressively declining fatality ratio and reduction of confirmed cases, the PTF would also like to draw our attention to a subtle change in epicentre of the virus.

“We all recall that Lagos, Kano and Ogun states were the initial epicentres and this shifted to Oyo at a time, and now Plateau State.

“As mentioned by Lagos State Commissioner of Health and a notable COVID-19 warrior, Professor Akin Abayomi, Lagos has passed its peak but we call for vigilance and cautious optimism because the scourge is not over yet.

“Our strategic objective remains to test samples in high numbers across the entire nation.”‎

The SGF announced the launch of two PTF Transparency Initiative Dashboards which will provide Nigerians with valuable information concerning the management of the pandemic. ‎
