The Kaduna State government has announced the discharged of one coronavirus patient from its infectious disease centre.
The state Commissioner for Health, Amina Baloni who made the disclosure on Wednesday, said the patient recovery was confirmed after his test result for the disease returned negative twice.
Baloni stated: “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 further hailed the dedication of the health personnels contributing to the ‘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,” she said.
The health commissioner therefore reminded 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’. She added.
“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.”
