FG Extends Lockdown In State With Increasing COVID-19 Cases.

The chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, announced on Monday, May 18 that Buhari has extended a total lockdown in states with increasing covid-19 cases.

Boss Mustapha said the extension will also enable other segments of the economy prepare adequately for reopening in the coming weeks.

The Presidential Task Force has also extended for two weeks the gradual easing of the lockdown in Kano, Lagos, Ogun and Abuja to curb spread of the virus.

In the first phase of two weeks which is now over, food processing companies, banks, pharmaceutical industries, government buildings, and neighbourhood markets were allowed to open with directives on measures to put in place.

Social activities such as the use of recreational parks, sports, concerts, social parties and movie theatres also remained suspended.

Religious gatherings also remained suspended by the authorities, although some state governments have started to relax that particular restriction.
