Covid-19: Lagos passes peak, no longer epicenter – PTF

The Federal Government says Lagos has passed its Coronavirus transmission peak, and therefore no longer the epicenter of infection.

This is according to the Presidential Taskforce Chairman, Boss Mustapha who said this at a briefing in Abuja on Thursday.

According to him, the epicentre of the infection is now Plateau State, which has recorded high cases of infection in the past few days.

He noted that the epicenter which at a point was Oyo State, has now moved to Plateau State.

Mustapha said: “It is with all sense of modesty that I wish to state that Nigeria has done remarkably well, but can do exceedingly better as captured in President Muhammadu Buhari’s speech during the World Health Certification-Free status for the African continent.

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

Restating that Lagos had passed its peak, Mustapha advocated for compliance with the COVID-19 protocols and cautious optimism because the scourge was not over yet.
