The governor said a curfew might be enforced if the cases increase. He added that most of the cases that have been recorded have been imported cases but that the state might soon enter the trend of community transmission

“We are moving to the direction of curfew but there are indices and numbers we need to see, we haven’t seen that number yet to warrant a curfew. The disease is not a respecter of anybody. It doesn’t look at class, gender or race, everybody is at risk, that is why we need to obey the rules and regulations set for ourselves.

Most of the cases we are dealing with have been imported cases but we are also starting to see a trend that we might be entering a phase where community transmision of the disease could also be coming in ” he said.
