President Muhammadu Buhari will make some difficult decisions on coronavirus (COVID-19) containment next week Wednesday.
The Director-General of the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu made this known during a courtesy call on Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State.
“President Buhari will on Wednesday have a tele conference with the Governors and there will be some difficult decisions to be made on how to restart the economy, especially on what to start and what not to start,” he said.
Meanwhile, Governor Masari has asked the NCDC to establish a testing centre in Katsina to ensure speedy confirmation of samples of suspected cases in the state.
According to Masari, the State Government had to travel for about 12 hours after collecting samples of suspected patients for test in the laboratory at Abuja.
He said: ”Availability of a testing centre here will actually help in reducing the duration and the stress we are presently going through.
“Samples from Katsina had to reach Abuja in 24 hours otherwise it would not be tested.”
