Nigerians have been told not to be scared of undergoing the Coronavirus (COVID-19) tests.

The Presidential Task Force (PTF) Chairman and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, made this call on Monday during a briefing in Abuja.

He said it is important for Nigerians to carry out the tests to ascertain their COVID-19 status, especially since the virus is not a death sentence.

The SGF urged Nigerians to make use of “these facilities and get tested. Similarly, I implore us not to be afraid of undertaking the COVID-19 test.”

He added: “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.”

On Monday, 22 June, 2020, the NCDC announced 675 new cases of #COVID19, taking the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 20,919.
