THE Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has decried the rather careless manner in which many Nigerians have been handling the COVID-19 advisories, thereby putting themselves at risk and endangering the lives of others.

  The PTF Chairman, Mr Boss Mustapha, handed the warning yesterday while addressing reporters in Abuja.

  According to him, Nigerians should stir from to reciprocate government’s efforts at striking a balance between life of citizens and the economy.
