“At the motor parks and trains, our teams gave out fliers and handbills, detailing symptoms of the disease and what to do to prevent the spread of coronavirus.”

“People are also advised to cough or sneeze in a tissue paper or handkerchiefs and dispose of them properly after use. Those that don’t have handkerchiefs or tissues should sneeze or cough into a sleeve of a bent elbow.

”Beyond this, she stressed that the Infectious Disease Control Centre (DCC) and public hospitals in Kaduna have been stocked with drugs and medical consumables to curb the virus.

While there has been no recorded case of Coronavirus in the state, the deputy governor urged hospitals to attend to symptoms like cough and fever promptly.

  1. Well done job! But this is not really enough, we demand to see you on the various roads leading to Kaduna state and beyond as did you for a month ago for this will greatly help toward ensuring safety in health and protected from being spread the virus when allowed into the town. I however much, i wish to emplore this August opportunity to remind the governor of Kaduna about the distribution of facemasks across the state for yet there’s not anybody seen sharing it and people are charged and fined huge amount of money especially those who have found not wearing the facemasks. For you to put in place laws, you need to provide with people all the necessary requirements.
