Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Mr Boss Mustapha has urged Nigerian tailors to start mass producing face mask, using the country’s local fabrics.
According the Independent Nigeria, Mustapha said this at the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 press briefing on Thursday in Abuja while addressing the issue of insufficient face mask in the country.
The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN), reports also that the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), has recommended the use of cloth for face covering to help reserve surgical masks or N-95 respirators for medical professionals fighting the virus.
He said it was time for Nigerian tailor to start producing locally made face mask with “our fabric,” adding that with such move, the risk of infecting others would be reduced. The SGF, however, appealed to Nigerians to take responsibility and play their roles properly. Mustapha said that the PTF will continue to count on the cooperation of all Nigerians in their effort to contain the spread of virus.
