The government of Katsina State, has again ordered the total lockdown of Daura, President Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown, and two other Local Government Areas, to mitigate the spread of the dreaded Covid-19 pandemic.
This was disclosed to Journalists by Governor Aminu Masari, during a Press Conference at his office.
Masari, who was updating the Journalists on the status of the fight in the State against Covid-19, said that the move became necessary, considering the population density in the affected Local Government Areas.
He noted that the State has recorded about 337 positive cases, with 293 active cases, and 18 deaths; while 51 patients have been discharged, with 43 patients on admission.
He also emphasised the need for all hands to be on deck, to educate residents on the mandatory use of face masks, and embrace other health guidelines relating to Covid-19.
His words: “Our people need real education to adopt face masks, until preventive vaccine is introduced; this is the only way to reduce the spread of the virus.”
