The government of Kano state has stated that it will soon enforce a compulsory use of face masks, as part of preventive measure to curb the spread of coronavirus.

He said when the state gets a targeted number of face masks on ground the policy will be enforced. Ganduje said, it is sad to notice that some residents have continued to violate the social distancing order which is meant to address the situation.
