Fed Govt criticises governors on worship centres opening

The Federal Government has said that governors easing restriction on large gathering are willfully breaching the protocols designed to guide the country out of Coronavirus spread.

Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 control Chairman Boss Mustapha stated this on Thursday and reiterated that the ban on gatherings of more than 20 people remained banned.

“Governors are also advised on the decision taken by some of their colleagues to permit large gatherings as such decisions could inadvertently endanger the elderly, the sick and those with underlying factors during such gatherings. The strong advisory from the PTF is that large gatherings beyond 20 persons remain prohibited and should be adhered to”.

NMA speaks on testing challenge in Kogi

The Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), has said testing for the Coronavirus disease remains a challenge in Kogi state.

This was stated by Dr Kabir Zubair, the chairman of the state’s branch on Thursday in a reaction to report by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), that only one sample has so far been sent in for test by Kogi. The test came negative.

He stated that the challenge had led to agitation from members of the Association of Resident Doctors (ARD), being that they are in the first line to attend to suspected cases, a number of which cases have been received at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Lokoja, in recent times.

He said: “Although, no confirmed case has been reported in Kogi State, till date, but a number of suspected cases have been attended to at FMC Lokoja, and members of the ARD are among the first to attend to these patients, and as such, they might be exposed to the highly contagious virus.

“ARD is an affiliate of the Nigeria Medical Association, and they are among the most exposed healthcare workers to patients with suspected COVID-19 in the hospital settings.”
