The Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) on COVID-19, says the audiovisual clip of the erstwhile National Coordinator under the defunct PTF circulating on social media, is not new.
A Statement from the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation said that the clip was an old video and had nothing to do with the recent guidelines released.
The PSC further stated unequivocally that the recently released Implementation Guidelines was a reissue of the guidelines published on April 27, 2020 and not new as being speculated, but to reinforce existing provisions of the COVID-19 Health Protection Regulations, 2021 to serve as a reminder that COVID-19 is still virulent.
The Presidential Steering Committee, therefore, urged the public to disregard the old video of PTF circulating on social media and to comply with Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions on COVID-19 to avoid a surge as being experienced in some parts of the world.
All State Governments are also urged to ensure strict compliance with all measures.
