Plateau now epicentre of covid-19 in Nigeria- PTF


The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 says the epicentre of the dreaded virus has shifted from states such as Lagos, Kano, Ogun and Oyo to Plateau State.

The Chairman of the task force, Boss Mustapha, who is also the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, disclosed this at a press briefing in Abuja.

Mustapha said since six months ago that the country recorded its index case of coronavirus from Lagos State, “Nigeria has done remarkably well, but could do exceedingly better.”

He added that “The PTF would also like to draw Nigerians’ attention to a subtle change in the epicentre of the virus.
