EDO State governor, Godwin Obaseki, has declared a ten-day dusk-to-dawn curfew in the state.

  The order comes into effect from today Monday to end on Thursday, April 30. The order will be reviewed after the ten days curfew.

  Regretting the hardship imposed on the people by global pandemic, Obaseki said that measures are in place to cushion its effect.

  According to him, the order was made to halt coronavirus pandemic from spreading further in Edo State.

  Speaking further, Obaseki said the decision became necessary due to the rising cases of the COVID-19 cases in the state. Hence, the state should take every necessary step to curb the disease before it gets out of hand.

  Gov. Obaseki also procured two more testing machines and 15 additional ventilators for the isolation centre in the state.

  Similarly, Ebonyi has imposed dusk-to-dawn curfew throughout the state.

Gov. Dave Umahi declared this in a statewide broadcast to the people.

According to him, the order is in line with his administration’s commitment to stepping up the campaign against further spread of COVID-19.
