From Muawiyya Bala Idris, Katsina
Katsina State Governor Aminu Bello Masari has directed markets and owners of shopping malls to commence use of sanitisers to screen customers to guard against possible outbreak of Corona virus.
In a broadcast to the people of the state, Masari said use of sanitisers became mandatory in view of the spread of the deadly disease like bush fire.
Masari directed health personnel and security agents to ensure compliance of the directive, warning that government will deal with any person who refuses to abide by the directives.
He called on the people of the state to stop unnecessary travelling outside the state and public gathering to avert contracting the disease.
He said his administration has directed the ministry of health to embark on sensitising people on how to prevent themselves from contracting the disease.
