All mourners not properly kitted against the coronavirus at the burial of Mallam Abba Kyari at Gudu Cemetery, Abuja have been rounded up for isolation.
Dr Mohammed Kawu, acting Secretary Health and Human Services of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) made this known on Saturday.
All the unprotected men at the burial have been identified, he said.
He also said the Hazmat suit dumped by a mourner at the cemetery has been professionally evacuated.
The mourner was among those rounded up for isolation, he said.
Kawu also said the cemetery has been decontaminated.
He said that necessary tests would be conducted on all of the arrested mourners to determine their level of exposure to coronavirus.
Henceforth, the FCTA will ensure that all future burials of victims of COVID-19 are conducted in line with protocols established by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
He urged the FCT residents to remain calm and rest assured that the FCT would continue to do all necessary to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 in Abuja.
