Stop Revealing  Details About Our Drugs- FG Begs Covid-19 Survivors.

The Secretary to the Government who doubles as Chairman,  Presidential Task Force on Covid-19, Boss Mustapha has pleaded the virus survivors to stop revealing  details of the drugs used for them during treatment.

Following the testimony given by AIT Chairman, Chief Dokpesi who said he was given malaria drugs to treat  virus and admitted with the fact that he could not comprehend the differences between coronavirus and malaria.

As a result of this, Boss Mustapha beseeched the survivors to stop giving details of the drugs used to treat them in order to avoid self-medication.

PTF chairman at press briefing in Abuja expressed concern that some of the survivors giving testimonies and disclosing the prescription for treatment of the Covid-19 could stir patients to embrace self medication instead of seeking help from health authorities.

He therefore admonished Nigerians  that develop symptoms of coronavirus to undergo test and go into isolation centres for care if the result is positive.

According to him, " We should always have it in mind that the symptoms of Covid-19 mimic some illness we already know but treating the symptoms is not the same as treating the virus. For this reason, we sternly frown at self-medication."

Boss Mustapha however sounds a note of warning to the State Governors going against the Federal Government's  directive. He said lifting restrictions on large gatherings would give more strength to the virus and at the same time destroy the already made achievements.
