COVID-19: We Acknowledge Mistakes Made During Burial of Late CoS – PTF

The burial of the late Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari, on 18 April

2020, has attracted a lot of concerns from Nigerians over the non-adherence to the physical distancing measures and mass gathering restrictions at the Gudu Cemetery.

The nonobservance of physical distancing and the flouting of mass gathering restrictions at the cemetery were due to the failure of crowd control measures.

We acknowledge that mistakes were made, we have learnt from these

mistakes and would ensure that future events are adequately regulated

in accordance with the Presidential Task Force and the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) protocols.

It is however important to state that the body of the late Chief of Staff, who died on 17 April 2020, was prepared for burial in line with the  NCDC interim guidelines for the safe management of a deceased person with COVID-19 infection.

As a matter of fact, the body of anyone who dies from COVID-19 infection will not be released for burial without following these guidelines

Consequently, the body of the late Chief of Staff was thoroughly decontaminated, put in a body bag and then a sealed coffin in Lagos before being flown to Abuja. On arrival in Abuja, all safety measures

required to protect those handling the body were strictly adhered to, from the plane to the burial ground. At no time was the body openly exposed to the environment.

It is worth noting that while COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that is significantly less infectious when compared to Ebola or Lassa fever, the protocols for safe burial must still be strictly followed.

The incidents that were recorded after the burial, which may have compromised due safety procedures, have been duly recognized and correct steps taken to limit any risk to the public.

Mr. Boss Mustapha

Chairman, Presidential Task Force on COVID-19

    I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.

    as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad
    and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has
    83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone
    with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
