The governor of Bauchi State, Senator Bala Muhammad, has imposed a 10-day total lockdown in the state as Covid-19 continues to spread.
“Following the rising number of COVID19 cases in Katagum, Giade and Zaki Local Government Areas of Bauchi state, we are at this moment imposing a total lockdown in the aforementioned areas with effect from Tuesday, May 12, 2020. The lockdown is to last for ten consecutive days”, he disclosed.
In his recent tweets, he said the total lockdown, which before now, was preceded by a partial lockdown, is to be immediately followed with extensive testing of residents and sanitisation of the environment in all the affected areas.
He, however, prayed for perfect healing of the victims as there are secured enough bed spaces in the Federal Medical Centre, Azare as well as about 150-bed spaces built for the treatment and management of patients.
In response to the new order disseminated, the state indigenes praise his actions as others requested for special support for the total lockdown to be effective.
Obviously, the normalcy of the country is everyone’s priority at the moment as leaders nationwide take actions.
