The Federal Capital Territory Minister, Mohammed Bello, has warned that the second wave of Covid-19 may have hit the Federal Capital Territory.
For this reason, the Minister says the FCT Administration may be constrained to declare another round of lockdown, if residents continue to ignore adherence to the health protocols.
The FCT Minister said this on Monday at the emergency stakeholders’ review meeting on the 2nd wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
While decrying the non-compliance of the residents to COVID-19 safety protocol, Bello noted that the 2nd wave of the virus is deadlier as lives are already being lost to the pandemic in the territory.

He called on FCT residents to adhere to all protocols stipulated to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, by maintaining social distancing, washing of hands, and wearing face masks, even as he warned that declaring another round of lockdown will be detrimental to the city’s economy.
The FCT Emergency Stakeholders’ Review Meeting came at the heel of the death of the Leadership Newspaper publisher, Sam Nda Isaiah, who died of complications from COVID-19.
