Coronavirus: Buhari Govt Warns Of Another Shutdown
According to Aliyu:
“We eventually have to reopen, but we can only do so if we reopen safely. It is quite clear, as we can see from the other parts of the world, that certain countries are now going back into lockdown because of the pandemic coming back, otherwise called recrudescence or what we call a second wave.
“We really cannot afford to have this happening in this country. It will destroy our economy and it will lead to a lot of deaths. Therefore, we have to reopen safely. We cannot risk another shutdown nor can we risk more lives being lost.”
This followed the confirmation of 304 new COVID-19 cases by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, as at Tuesday night.
NCDC had also disclosed that about 910 deaths have been recorded in Nigeria.
