COVID-19: Nasarawa govt to test passengers at motor parks

Nasarawa state government says advocacy and immediate testing will now take place at motor parks across the state to sensitize travelers on safety steps to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Mr Ahmed Yahaya, Commissioner for Health made this known at a new briefing held at the Nasarawa State Government House in Lafia on Saturday shortly after a stakeholders’ meeting chaired by Governor Abdullahi Sule on measures to prevent the spread of the disease.

He said that the measure will prevent infected travelers coming in to the state from spreading the disease to residents of the state.

Yahaya told newsmen that some of the resolutions reached after the meeting were to screen and test travelers coming into the state at every motor park across the state so as to ensure that no traveler comes in with the disease.

“We are moving to parks and markets to increase sensitization, advocacy and we have ordered necessary gadgets for us to test on-spot travelers and traders so as to ensure the disease does not come to the state,” he said.
