Kano State Government has ordered the shutdown of all routes connecting the state from other parts of the country in a bid to curb COVID-19’s spread. The closure is to take effect on Friday.
According to the government, the decision is difficult but important, particularly when any successful case is yet to be reported in the state.
This was included in a statement written by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Abba Anwar, at mid-night. He said:
“This decision is hard, but absolutely necessary, as part of precautionary measures against the deadly COVID-19 possible spread. We urge Kano citizens and all other Nigerians to bear with this difficult situation.
“People must cooperate with health workers and all other stakeholders to make sure that our state is safe and the country in general.”
