Kaduna State Government has said that it has discharged one out of the six patients that was infected by coronavirus, from the Infectious Disease Centre.

Commissioner for Health, Dr Amina Mohammed Baloni on Wednesday said that the patient has recovered following treatment at the isolation centre.

According to her, the patient’s recovery “has been confirmed by two consecutive negative results, the second of which came yesterday, Tuesday, 14 April 2020.”

“State government is looking forward to the recovery and discharge of the other five Covid-19 patients in the state,” she added.

Baloni  acknowledged “the dedicated contributions of our various teams that are contributing to our collective Covid-19 efforts. We also wish to pay tribute to the medical professionals at the Infectious Disease Centre for the successful management of this patient.”

“The Ministry of Health wishes to remind residents of Kaduna State that it is safer and cheaper to observe preventive measures than to treat Covid-19. Citizens must wash their hands regularly with soap and water and scrupulously observe social distancing.

“They are also advised to avoid large gatherings and stay at home, except it is absolutely necessary to go out. Wherever they are, they should also practise respiratory hygiene,” she advised.
