JUST IN: Niger State Extends Lockdown Over Breach Of Social Distancing Order

Niger State governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, has just of recent times made it known to the public that there would be an extension of the lockdown in the state while lamenting about the flagrant breach of the COVID-19 safety guidelines at public places and wearing of face masks.

This governor made this announcement while addressing the media shortly after the weekly meeting with members of the State task force on COVID-19.

The Governor therefore advised residents to be more vigilant, adhere strictly to personal hygiene, observe social distancing at public places, wear face masks and seek medical attention in the event of symptoms such as fever, cough and catarrh.

“Let me also call on individuals with travel history from States with cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to ensure they self-isolate and promptly report to the nearest health facility.”

The governor further went ahead to say that drugs, medical supplies and personal protective equipment have been prepositioned at the Isolation centers.
