Nigeria Blames Worship Centres, Schools For COVID-19 Spread


The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has blamed worship centres, schools and others for the rise in coronavirus cases in the country in November 2020.

This was stated by the chairman, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF Boss Mustapha, at a press briefing organised by the PTF.

Mustapha also said the January 18 scheduled by the government for the resumption of schools is currently being reviewed due to the second wave of the pandemic.

“It is, however, very instructive to stress that factors that have contributed to rise in numbers from late November 2020 included increased local and international travels, business and religious activities, reopening of schools without strict compliance with COVID-19 safety measures,” Mustapha said.
