The federal government has extended phase three of eased COVID-19 lockdown by one month.
The Nation reports that the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 announced this on Monday, January 25.
It was gathered that the chairman of PTF, Boss Mustapha, made this known at the weekly briefing of the task force in Abuja.
“The PTF is improving on the international travel portal to minimise the challenges passengers keep encountering. Similarly, it is reviewing the guidelines on the implementation of phase three of the eased lockdown which is due to expire today.”
Mustapha further stated:
“In view of the fact that our numbers are not abating, all extant measures prescribed in these guidelines are (subject to some modifications) extended by a period of one month with effect from Tuesday, January 26, 2020.”
