NIGERIANS have been urged to dismiss fears of undergoing COVID-19 tests.
Chairman of the Presidential Task Force – PTF, Boss Mustapha said at a briefing in Abuja, on Monday, that it was important for Nigerians to carry out the tests to ascertain their COVID-19 status, stressing that testing positive to the novel coronavirus was not a death sentence.
“I, therefore, urge Nigerians to make use of these facilities and get tested,’’ Mustapha said.
“Testing positive for COVID-19 is not a death sentence, but failure to test, especially when symptoms are evident could result in death as it may be too late once the symptoms become full-blown.
“The loss of any Nigerian is not only painful but most avoidable provided we seek help early,” the Chairman of the PTF added.
