It would be recalled that the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, has urged Nigerians to brace up for an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases as a result of the easing of the lockdown nationwide. He said that more cases of the virus are expected, especially as a result of the lifting of the ban on interstate travels, and therefore urged Nigerians not to assume it is safe to move about yet.
