National coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, has warned states against competiting with numbers of COVID-19 cases amongst them.

This was said at a briefing of the task force on Monday at Abuja, Aliyu urged state governments to be transparent about figures of cases.

He stated: “COVID-19 numbers is not an issue of competition between states. “There’s no shame if a state comes out with positive numbers.

“In order to deal with an epidemic, we need to have transparency in numbers and that transparency is linked to the number of tests.

“If you do not know the extent of a problem, you’ll not be able to deal with it.

“So I’m appealing to state governments to please continue to support the state emergency operating centres, the state ministry of health and make sure that everybody who needs to be tested for COVID-19 in any state in the country has that opportunity of having the test done.”
