- PTF had decried on the level at which Nigerians go in preventing themselves against Coronavirus pandemic.
- NCDC warns about people engaging with large gatherings across the country.
The Nigerian Centre for Disease Control says the use of masks is more effective than face guards.
The Director-General of the NCDC, Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, said this during the Presidential Task Force briefing on Thursday.
The NCDC boss said anyone who opts for face guard must still wear a mask underneath.
The use of face guards has become common in the last couple of weeks with governors and other top government functionaries using it in public places.
