The state government of Kaduna has begun to fumigate all markets across the state in an effort to stop the spread of coronavirus in the state.
This follows the closing of all markets with the exception of those who sell food and medicines on order by order of the state governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
After enforcing the closure of all stores dealing with non-essential items, officials at the state market development agency began with other members of the exercise group on Wednesday.
The calculation of the markets started with Sheikh Abubakar Gumi Market in the state capital.
Governor El-Rufai visited the market to monitor compliance with the previous directive that all stores handling non-essential items must be closed to protect people from COVID-19.
