Kaduna state government has said that public spaces may be temporarily closed if people fail to observe Covid-19 preventive protocols in the state.

117 positive cases were recorded in the state while 518 people tested on Friday in what seems like a second wave of the pandemic.

The State Commissioner of Health, Dr. Amina Mohammed-Baloni at a press conference on Saturday said it was unfortunate that COVID 19 cases in the state rose adding that the high infection figures reminiscent of the first wave of Covid-19 spread between April and June in the state.

The commissioner said the government had expected some increase in infections after the reopening of schools, markets, places of worship, and recreational centers.

“If the spread continues at the current rate, it may challenge and overwhelm the health system despite our efforts to improve the resilience of that sector,” she said.

The commissioner appealed to residents to always observe COVID-19 preventive protocols to protect themselves and their families.
