The Kaduna State government has revealed that as at 6pm today Monday 4th May, 2020, the state is treating 72 Covid-19 patients of which Almajirai who recently returned from Kano constitute 65 of these cases.
According to the government, “the seven others on admission are persons with travel history outside the state or their contact.”
The government also highlighted that “since the index case was reported on 28 March 2020, Kaduna State has discharged eight patients and has recorded one fatality who died before his positive test result was received. Overall, 81 cases have been recorded in the state but the active cases are now 72.”
As part of efforts to prevent community transmission, the State Standing Commitee on Covid-19 has appealed “to citizens to report any person who they know has sneaked into the state. Such persons are violating the state’s Quarantine Orders & the FG’s prohibition of interstate travel.
“Beyond illegal conduct, such persons are risking the health and lives of Kaduna State residents by recklessly spreading the virus across state lines.
“Residents of Kaduna State are encouraged to be uncompromising in exposing & reporting these potential spreaders of disease. They should not be allowed to spread sickness and make nonsense of the sacrifices the people of Kaduna State are making in complying with Quarantine Orders.”
