He also urged Nigerian to pursue a strategy that would aid the sustainable control of the spread of the virus, stressing that risk communications and community engagement should remain a top priority.

According to him, the test count nationwide had exceeded 60,000, stating that a shift in focus to enhanced risk communication and community engagement was imperative.

He said: “The PTF considers that while Nigeria’s COVID-19 confirmed cases have increased in the period under review, the following factors should inspire confidence in the response.
