COVID-19: Lagos, Abuja returnees spark fear, uncertainty in Katsina communities
There is currently pressing fear and uncertainty as regards to the current situation of Covid-19 pandemic in many Katsina communities as people continue to return from high risk states of Lagos and Abuja.
Reports reaching Katsina Post has it that despite the border closure in many states in the country including Katsina, many of the state’s indigene still find their way back home from the high risk states.
With the past few days, reports from across the state has it that hundreds of people people – if not thousands-especially from Lagos returned back.
Our sources from Katsina border communities also confirmed to us that the state continues to records influx of returnees from Abuja and Lagos largely due to the closure of their means of livelihood their.
This is particularly worrisome as the state’s already confirmed nine cases of the COVID-19 are linked to Lagos.
However, the Katsina State’s Preparedness and Response Committee on COVID-19 is working in collaboration with the Security agents and traditional rulers to make sure all returnees put themselves in self isolation.
