The Nigerian government said on Thursday that following the national response to COVID-19, the curve of the pandemic is beginning to flatten in the country.

“We cannot but say that tremendous progress has been made and that we are beginning to notice that the curve is flattening,” Secretary to the Government of the Federation Boss Mustapha said at a daily press briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja.

“However, as we have always stated, this positive development shall be taken with vigilance and cautious optimism,” Mustapha said.

The PTF, he said, is closely watching the situations at airports, as the most populous African nation has recently reopened its airspace for international flights.
