Masari Orders Lockdown in Daura, as 3 Family Members Test Positive for Coronavirus

Katsina State governor, Aminu Bello Masari, has ordered a total lockdown in Daura Local Government Area, after three new cases of coronavirus were recorded.

The governor made the announcement in a series of tweets on Friday.

The three new cases are the wife and two children of a pharmacist, who died of the virus.

According to a tweet by the governor: “Further to our earlier briefing on the Daura #COVID19 situation; out of the samples sent for testing, 23 results have been returned with 20 being negative while 3 are unfortunately positive. Incidentally the 3 are the deceased Doctor’s wife and his 2 children,” he tweeted.

“We will continue to monitor situations as they unfold and will not hesitate to lockdown any local government area that may record positive #COVID19 case. We won’t falter in putting the whole state under total lockdown should the situation warrants.

“However, 3 pharmacies and 3 grocery stores will be identified for people to patronise under strict supervision and when absolutely necessary.”

Recall that Katsina state was on partial lockdown  but it was relaxed by the government, with civil servants asked to resume back work last Monday.
