COVID-19: Ganduje relaxes Kano lockdown

Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, Saturday announced the relaxation of the lockdown in the state.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on Monday ordered two-week total lockdown of the state over the reported mass mysterious deaths in the state.

There is also a recent spike in the COVID-19 cases in the state, with the total number of infections hitting 319, according to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

The governor designated 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays as lockdown-free days.

He, however, said no markets would be allowed to open, except supermarkets.

He said the list of exempted supermarkets would be announced on local radio stations later.
