THE National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, on Tuesday, disclosed that states in the country received N50billion to fight against coronavirus.
Speaking in Abuja on Tuesday during the briefing of the task force, Aliyu said, “We have given resources to state governments.
“Every state has received at least a billion; the state governments have received the largest single bulk of the PTF.
“As of today, a total of N50 billion went to states, so, we have enough resources at the state level to be able to push for increased testing and improved surveillance.
“We will continue to work with state governments and urge them to use these resources for the purpose that the federal government has given.
“We have to invest in making sure that the pandemic comes down.
“There is no doubt we have not flattened the curve yet.
“For those of us that follow the numbers very closely, despite the fact that we are not testing enough, if you follow the number on a week to week basis, you would have noticed a change in the trajectory in the last one week based on the numbers released.”
