In a bid to curb the spread of the deadly Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Nigeria, government has placed a ban on foreign trips for all of its officials.

The ban was announced by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, who said that it will commence immediately.

The Federal Government had raised a Presidential Task Force for the control of Coronavirus in Nigeria.

The SGF, while inaugurating the committee on Tuesday in Abuja, said it had six months to complete its assignment.

This is coming after the country confirmed the third case of Coronavirus.
