Citizens are commending the recent decision of the Plateau State Government, to make compulsory, the use of face mask in public places, due to the increase in the number of Covid 19 positive cases in recent times.
A task force has been set up by the State Government to monitor and enforce compliance of the new order.

Since then, there has been a daily increase in figures with more than 500 people having tested positive for the virus between April to July .
The State Government is not comfortable with this and has set up a task force to enforce compliance with safety guide lines, as a matter of priority.
