Kano State Governor Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has ordered for house-to-house covid-19 sample collection exercise, following report that the pandemic is concentrated within the metropolitan Kano, with Taurani Local Government Area recording the highest number of carriers.

The emergency exercise is expected to take place within the metropolitan Local Government Areas of the state, including Taurani, Nasarrawa, Dala, Fagge, Ungogo, Kumbotso and Kano Municipal.

Speaking during the Press Briefing organized by the State Task Force on COVID-19, Ganduje said, “we are putting our emphasis within the eight metropolitan Local Government Areas.

”We are engaging in house-to-house sample collection. I think during the political campaign, some politicians engaged in house-to-house campaign. Right now for COVID-19, we are engaging in house-to-house sample collection campaign.”

According to him, “there is no doubt we are always improving in our successes in the fight against COVID-19. This is as a result of the commitment of theTask Force and commitment of the frontline health workers.

“By now, we have known the easiest way to contract this disease and the easiest way to avoid it. We know the three commandments of COVID-19 which are social distancing, washing and sanitizing our hands and wearing our face mask.

“These three commandments should become our way of life. They should become part of our everyday life.”

He further hinted that, “relaxation of lockdown is now from 6 a.m to 6 p.m on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. We also decided to open our markets in order to improve business activities in the state.

“We are producing face masks in large quantities and the market leaders have promised to produce face masks and distribute them free of charge. They will also provide water and soap for visitors and customers to make use them.

“We have also decided to fumigate all the markets to ensure that they are devoid of diseases. The ratio of collection of samples has increased and we are determined to continue from this line.”
