The governor, speaking, said: “If there’s a need to extend the lockdown, I will. We got one discharged patient today. We are going to sit down with the committee that is working on the community markets and see if we can announce more next week. There’s been no backlash on the handling of people by the security operatives so far. I always tell them to wear a human face.”
