The Federal Government has warned Nigerians of COVID-19 third wave.

Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, issued the warning during yesterday’s briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

Mustapha, who is also the Chairman of the task force, noted that some countries were already experiencing the third wave of coronavirus.

He warned that Nigeria was not yet free from the virus despite the availability of COVID-19 vaccines.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the virus is very potent and people still get infected.

“It’s also a fact that the vaccination process has only just begun. It has been reported that some countries are recording a third wave of cases,” Mustapha said.

Nigeria currently has a total of 160,895 confirmed coronavirus cases with 2,016 deaths and 145,752 recoveries.

These figures were disclosed by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC.
