The Federal Government has urged Nigerians to get ready for tougher measures to help curtail the ongoing spread of Coronavirus Disease( COVID-19).
This was disclosed by the Minister for Information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed during a press briefing in Abuja.
Mohammed pointed out that these measures will be unveiled within the next 24 to 48 hours, just as the Federal Government has expressed its willingness to use the military and the Nigerian Police for contact tracing.
It expressed worries that more than 1,300 contacts who have dissolved into the society and yet to be traced.
A few people have helped. If you know you travelled recently, give yourself up to relevant agencies.
” If the situation warrants, we may be forced to use the police and the military for contact tracing. The police is already working on that. We don’t want the figure we have now to multiply. We should work towards containment which is cheaper.
