Kano has added one more week to the two-week total lockdown imposed on the state by President Buhari as part of measures to curtail the spread of the ravaging Coronavirus pandemic.
The state Commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba, disclosed in a statement while the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje also confirmed the extended lockdown.
The extension comes as the state recorded six more COVID-19 related deaths on Monday May 11, bringing the death toll to 32.
With 666 confirmed cases, Kano state is currently the second state with the highest number of infected persons after Lagos which remains the epicenter of the pandemic in Nigeria with 1933 confirmed cases.
With our COVID-19 cases now almost 700, the lockdown in the state will now be extended for another 7 days to slow down the spread. This decision was reached after consultations with the Federal Government. pic.twitter.com/kLF5i3FVJo
