Presentation of fake COVID-19 test results embarrassing – PTF

1 Mins read

The PTF Chairman, Mr Boss Mustapha, who is also  the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, expressed the worry at a briefing by the task force in Abuja.

The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 on Thursday expressed worry that  presentation of fake COVID-19 test results by Nigerians travelling abroad tarnished the country’s image.

He said: “It has become embarrassing to note that some Nigerians continue to present fake results when travelling outside the shores of this country.

”This remains a major source of concern to the Federal Government.”

According to Mustapha,   the PTF has directed private laboratories to  put in place measures to validate results and ensure that all passengers are registered on the travel portal before samples are processed.

He said that the directive was aimed at eliminating the fraud.

The chairman added that the  PTF was concerned about the increasing daily number of COVID-19 positive cases.

He noted that the country  recorded 1,664 new cases on Wednesday.

“This is yet another all-time high in Nigeria, and we must all take full responsibility through compliance and vigilance.

“It is better to wear a face mask than to be on  a ventilator.

”We have consistently appealed to all Nigerians to stay safe and act in most defensive and protective ways by complying with the non-pharmaceutical interventions already prescribed,” Mustapha said.
