Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari on Friday disclosed that three family members of a medical doctor who died of Coronavirus in the state have tested positive for the virus.

On Tuesday, Dr. Aminu Yakubu, a Daura based private Medical practitioner who recently returned from Lagos to Katsina died of Coronavirus.

Giving an update on the Coronavirus status of the State on Friday, Masari said out of the samples sent for testing, 23 results had been returned with 20 being negative while three were unfortunately positive.

“Incidentally the three are the deceased doctor’s wife and his 2 children,” he said.

Masari said though identification and taking of samples were still ongoing in Daura, the state government had decided to put Daura under a total lockdown starting from 7am tomorrow.

“We gave this grace to enable people make necessary purchases.

“However, three pharmacies and three grocery stores will be identified for people to patronise under strict supervision and when absolutely necessary.

“The state government will also provide palliative support to the people of Daura within the period of the lockdown.

“We will continue to monitor situations as they unfold and will not hesitate to lockdown any local government area that may record positive COVID-19 case. We won’t falter in putting the whole state under total lockdown should the situation warrants,” he said.
