The Anambra State Government has suspended the 9 pm to 6 am curfew, initially introduced to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus in the state. Professor Solo Chukwulobelu, Secretary to Anambra State government, said that the suspension measure was taken as a result of the report of the State COVID-19 Task Force that Anambra people have improved in compliance with the COVID-19 preventive guidelines in the state.
Prof. said that “it has been observed that Ndi Anambra and residents have become conscious of the threat to life that COVID-19 poses. There is appreciable compliance to the Covid-19 preventive guidelines issued by the government. We are not relenting, as we shall continue with our various interventions, including public enlightenment, engagement with market leaders, churches, hospitals and caregivers, and other stakeholders with the aim of stopping the spread of the virus in our state.”
“Governor Willie Obiano has directed the suspension of the curfew with effect from 6am, Saturday, 13th February, 2021. However, it is important that our people continue to adhere to the guidelines earlier issued; (1) wearing a protective facemask when in public places and outdoors.
(2) maintaining social distancing at public gatherings (3) washing hands regularly with soap for at least 20 seconds each time (4) using hand sanitizers regularly (5) If you suspect that you are showing symptoms of Covid-19, or feel unwell, contact the nearest hospital immediately. Do not self-medicate,” he said.
