BREAKING: PTF explains reason for low COVID-19 death rate in Nigeria

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic has cited the prevalence of the disease among the younger generation as reason for the low death rate in Nigeria.

Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Chairman of the PTF, Mr Boss Mustapha, cited the reason while speaking to State House Correspondents after briefing President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday.

According to Mustapha, around 80% of the infected persons were between the 31 years to 40 years age bracket, an active demography, which he noted that even when they have the infection, they are able to surmount it because of their level of energy.

He, however, noted that the PTF was worried about the remaining 20% as he said nobody knows who may become victim among them, adding that everything was being done to protect them.

He also hinted that government may introduce precision lockdown for pinpoint management of coronavirus hotspots.

According to him, 18 out of the 774 local governments in the country have been identified as responsible for 60% of the confirmed cases in the country.

He added that the reason for the precision lockdown will be to place specific measures in certain places especially by state governments to enable aggressive testing for the disease and management.
