Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has asked people of the state to remain at their homes for another two weeks as government continued to make efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
The governor said with three confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus in the state, it was necessary that the stay-at-home order as well as 7pm to 7am curfew in the state be extended to another two weeks.
He said his government would at the end of the week start to distribute free face masks across the state as well as share food items to low-income families and communities to cushion the effect of the lockdown.
The governor made this known in a post on his verified Twitter account-@IAOkowa, on Tuesday.
He wrote, “With three confirmed cases of #COVID19 in Delta State, we are working round-the-clock to curb the spread of the virus. This is why, I announced a two-week extension of the stay-at-home order, as well as a 7pm to 7am curfew.
“In-line with the recommendations of global health experts, at the end of this week, we will begin the process of distributing free face masks across Delta State.
“Additionally, I informed our citizens and residents that we are also working to fast-track the distribution of food items to low-income families and communities to cushion the effect of the lockdown.”
