COVID-19: Zamfara government acquires ventilators, test kits

In a bid to tackle the dreaded coronavirus pandemic, Zamfara State government has acquired 12 ventilators and about 20,000 test kits for its two isolation centres in Gusau and Damba.
In a statement issued and made available to DAILY POST on Saturday by Special Adviser to the Governor on Public Enlightenment, Media and Communication, Zailani Bappa, he said government would do all it could, to protect the people.
While inspecting the facilities at the Yariman Bakura Specialist Hospital isolation center, Gusau, Governor Matawalle said, “his administration will continue to do all that was required to ensure the protection of the citizens against the spread of the virus.”
“Other items procured included hand sanitisers and face masks for distribution to all quarters across the state”, the statement noted.
Governor Matawalle urged all residents of Zamfara to obey the rules introduced by the state Government during this Ramadan season as it remained the only option for the people to be less vulnerable to the spread of the disease in the state.
He said the closure of borders in the State and the setting up of mobile courts to instantly try and prosecute offenders was done in good faith, just as the measures of suspending this year’s Tafsir, Taraweeh and Ittikaf across the State was also done in good faith.
