The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, alongside his wife has gone into self-isolation, as some of members of his household have tested positive for COVID-19.
In a statement the chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 signed himself and made available to the media on Sunday, Mustapha said, “I would like to inform the general public that some members of my household tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday evening.
“Although they are currently asymptomatic, they have been isolated and are receiving care in one of the government treatment centres.
“My wife and I tested negative, but will remain in self-isolation and work from home according to protocols by the health authorities.”
The SGF used the opportunity to remind all Nigerians “that COVID-19 is real.”
He added, “As the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, announced last week, we are recording an increase in cases across several states.
“Please stay safe and protect yourself. Adhere to all public health and safety measures, so that we do not lose the gains we have made in the fight against COVID-19.
“As a family, we covet your prayers.
“Please take responsibility for yourself and to protect our country!”
