The Federal Government has ruled out banning fresh shutdown, even with the rises in corona cases also known as (COVID-19) in Nigeria.

Boss Mustapha, the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF), disclosed this on Thursday, during daily media conference.

Mustapha was asked if the government was looking to shutdown Nigeria again, in a way to flatten the curve of the deadly virus.

“To go back to a total lockdown must be taken in the context of what we desire to achieve after we’ve lockdown for about five weeks and seen how we fared.

“So the issue of review might not have that in contemplation because you can’t move forward and begin to move backward again,” he replied.

As at today, a total of 13,873 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Nigeria.

4,351 patients have been discharged and 382 deaths recorded.
