Mr Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has urged Nigerian tailors to start mass producing face mask, using the country’s local fabrics. Mustapha said this at the Presidential
Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 press briefing on Thursday in Abuja against
the backdrop of insufficient face mask in the country.The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN), reports
that the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), has recommended the
use of cloth for face covering to help reserve surgical masks or N-95
respirators for medical professionals fighting the virus.He said it was time for Nigerian tailor
to start producing locally made face mask with “our fabric,” adding that
with such move, the risk of infecting others would be reduced.“It is critical to repeat, however, that
compliance with the advisories for personal hygiene, social distancing,
restriction of movement, early reporting of symptoms and wearing of
masks regularly, especially in public, remain the best measures for the
prevention of infections and to slow down the spread,” Mustapha said.The SGF, however,  appealed to Nigerians to take responsibility and play their roles properly.“As we all know, we were in a state of war against an invisible enemy.“Let me also advise that whenever you are
outside the confines of your homes, make sure it is for very legitimate
reasons covered by the exemption or within the hours relaxed for the
purchase of basic items.  “Similarly, you should carry with you a
valid means of identification. Finally, I urge everyone to please
exercise patience in communicating with the Law Enforcement Agents
assigned to ensure compliance with the Presidential Orders,” he said.Mustapha said that the PTF will continue
to count on the cooperation of all Nigerians in their effort to contain
the spread of virus.Meanwhile, Dr Sani Aliyu, PTF National
Coordinator said that donors of palliatives should work with local
authorities to ensure social order is maintained during distribution of
essential items.Aliyu appealed to survivors of COVID-19 to tell their stories, at their own discretion.
