Today, Friday, June 19 will make it three straight weeks that Jum’ah services and regular daily prayers have been ongoing in Kano State, Muslim News findings have revealed.
Mosques and other places of worship had earlier been shutdown as a preventive measure in arresting the spread of the dangerous Coronavirus disease in Kano State and across Nigeria.
Muslim faithful across the country have been praying at home with their family members, even in the holy month of Ramadan.
However, since the Federal Government through the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 approved the ease of lockdown on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, worshippers have reconvened and resumed spiritual services in the mosques.
Findings by Muslim News indicate that the total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the State has risen to 1170, the third highest in the country, according to a report by the NCDC published on June 18.
Muslim faithful in Kano have been urged to adhere to the federal government’s protocols on social distancing, wearing masks and handwashing in order to stay safe as they go to different mosques for Jum’ah services.
