In a press statement which was issued by the state government, the governor was quoted to have given the order during his visit to the area to distribute food and other items “to those in critical need”.
After the distribution, Zulum announced the reopening of three secondary schools in Bama, saying it was to enable pupils to continue with their education. Zulum said,
“I will soon come back to Bama, I will personally supervise the enrollment of students. We have to reopen Government Day Secondary School, the mega school will also be converted to a Secondary School, while a girls’ Secondary School will be cited in Shettimari Primary School temporarily”.
This is the highest single-day infection to be recorded in the country.
