The Federal Government has expressed worry over the increasing number of confirmed cases of Covid 19 which currently stands at 174 recorded in 12 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

 

The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire speaking at the Presidential Taskforce joint Press briefing in Abuja advised land or air travellers especially to postpone non-essential travels so as not to be exposed to infected persons in confined areas.

 

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohmmed said that the wild spread of fake news is mitigating the collective fight against the pandemic as well as denying some widespread reports on social media.

 

Our Correspondent, Raliat Adenekan reports that the Presidential Taskforce however clarified that ONLY satellite markets are allowed to operate every other day for 4hours (10am to 2pm), as this does not apply to main markets that are already closed including markets closed by local authorities.
