NIGER MANDATES FACE MASKS.

The Niger Government on Thursday, declared that wearing of face masks in public places in the state had become compulsory so as to curb the spread of coronavirus.


Gov. Abubakar Bello, who made the declaration in Minna, said the enforcement was to further enhance other preventive measures put in place against the spread of COVID19 pandemic.


Bello directed all local government Chairmen in the state to ensure strict compliance with the guidelines.

 

“By this declaration today, public wearing of face masks and observation of social distancing are mandatory acts for all residents.


“These are aimed at controlling the spread of the virus and other related diseases in the state,” he said.


The governor disclosed that in bid to tackle the scourge, government had signed two orders – the Niger State Covid-19 Prevention Containment and the Emergency Order to Curtail Movement of People.


He said that the Mobile Courts earlier set up in the state had convicted 50 persons for violating the stay-at-home order, adding that government had also turned back some travellers from other states.


Bello noted that lockdown was still on course in the state, and appeal to traditional and religious leaders as well as other stakeholders to sensitise their followers on the dangers of coronavirus pandemic.
