The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has described news making the rounds that one of the Chinese doctors recently come serve Nigeria had tested positive for the COVID-19.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who is also a member of the PTFdebunked this claim during Wednesday’s daily media briefing by the task force in Abuja.
The Minister, who had in the past few days devoted most of his time during the daily briefings to debunk fake news and explain developments to the general public, advised Nigerians to discard reports about the government’s efforts to beat back COVID-19which did not emanate from the daily briefings or the website of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control NCDC.
He also took time to deflate reports claiming that members of the National Assembly had shared a N700 million fund, describing it as fake news.
