Ptf Declares Kogi State A High Risk State, Warns Against Visitation Covid19

The PTF warned Nigerians against visiting the state and also accused the Kogi government of failing to report testing and setting up isolation centers.

The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has listed Kogi, Kebbi, Jigawa, Zamfara as the high-risk states for failing to give the daily COVID-19 reports.

National Incident Manager (NIM) of the PTF COVID-19 pandemic, Mukhtar Muhammad warned Nigerians against visiting the state during the task force’s press briefing on Monday, February 1, and also accused the Kogi government of failing to report testing and setting up isolation centers.

Muhammad Said;

“In addition to these, we have states where data is not coming forth. If we don’t test, your data will not be analyzed and if your data is not analyzed, we won’t know the level of the pandemic in your state.

“Notable among the states are Yobe, Jigawa, Zamfara and Kebbi, and of course Kogi that has not been reporting at all.

“States that are not testing are probably at much higher risk than the states that are currently known as high burdened states.

“A state that is not testing at all is an absolute high risk for Nigerians to visit because, there is no testing facility and even if you fall sick, there is no isolation center and they don’t even acknowledge that the disease exists. So for that reason, we put that state at the top of high-risk states.”

Muhammad also disclosed that the 22 high burdened local government areas within 13 states in the country, mostly in the cities of the state capitals contributed over 95 percent of new cases recorded in the last six weeks.

He listed the states and local governments as Nkanu West (Enugu); Abuja Municipal (FCT); Gwagwalada FCT; Gombe (Gombe); Chikun (Kaduna); Kaduna North; Kaduna South; Nassarawa (Kano); Katsina (Katsina); Ilorin South (Kwara); Ilorin West (Kwara); Eti-Osa (Lagos); Ikeja (Lagos); Kosofe (Lagos); Lagos Mainland (Lagos); Keffi (Nasarawa); (Lafia) Nasarawa; Ibadan North (Oyo); Jos North (Plateau); Jos South (Plateau); Port-Harcourt (Rivers); and Wamako (Sokoto).
