The Federal Government says it attempts to trace about 4, 370 people who may have contacts with coronavirus patients in the country.

In a statement on Thursday, the Minister for Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said, “We have 4,370 people of interest whom we are tracing”.

Mr Mohammed urged those who have had contact with suspected cases to immediately report to the authorities.

“We urge Nigerians to support the authorities in this regard,” he added.

The minister warned that the nation is on the verge of reaching the level of community spread, noting that if proper measures are not taken, then the nation will record exponential cases in the days ahead.

Mr Mohammed argued that the nation’s strategy at containing the pandemic is working, he, however, stressed that the country still has a long way to go.

While stressing that he does not mean to spread panic, the minister noted that bold measures have been taken and more steps of such nature need to be taken to ensure that Nigeria beats the virus (Channels TV)
