The Federal Government has warned that Nigeria faces “an explosion” in coronavirus cases.

Minister for Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, stated this during a press briefing on Thursday in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

According to Mohammed, “time is running out” and “we have a short window” to stop the COVID-19 spread.

“I don’t intend to sound apocalyptic. But the truth is that time is running out.

“If we don’t urgently and more aggressively enforce the measures I have just listed, we have a short window within which to stop this pandemic or face an explosion in terms of the cases. We cannot afford to be complacent.

“In view of this, we are considering tougher measures to enforce compliance, stop the exportation of the disease to states that do not have it and minimize spread. Possible measures include:

– Stopping inter-state/inter-town travels, except for essential services

– Closing all motor parks and inter-state rail stations. Already, all train movements nationwide have been stopped.

There are currently 51 cases in Nigeria, but six people are believed to have made recovery from the virus and will be discharged soon.
