The Kano state government says it has recorded 20 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, according to the state’s Ministry of Health.
DAILY FOCUS reports that the COVID-19 cases had dropped to less than 200 in the past three days, signifying a reduction in the rate of infections based on the number of samples collected.
However, in its daily update on Wednesday evening, the Ministry of Health reported that 20 new COVID-19 cases were recorded out of 845 samples results submitted from the laboratories.
Recall that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje lifted lockdown in the state on July 2, 2020 and ordered civil servants from level 12 and above to resume work.
However, the governor said a curfew starting from 10pm to 4am would be observed everyday.
“The remaining 3 days the state is practicing lockdown order, are now lifted. People are now free to move around for the 7 days of a week. While observing the 10pm to 4pm curfew,” he said.
Speaking on the issue of school re-opening Mr Ganduje explained that the state can only act in line with federal directives.
“”All schools will only be opened on the directive of the federal government. But for final year or graduating pupils/students, like primary six pupils and students of Junior Secondary School II (JSS III) and Senior Secondary School III (SSS III), we are making preparation for their returning to schools,” he assured.
