The Chairman of Nigeria Medical Association NMA, Sokoto state chapter, Sani Abubakar, has been confirmed as the first positive case for coronavirus disease in the state.
Abubakar, who made the disclosure himself on Tuesday via his Facebook account, said he his clinically stable.
He wrote: ”One of my unpleasant responsibilities is when I have to break bad news to my highly cherished brethren. It became worse now that it is about me.
”I have been tested and confirmed positive for COVID-19 and I have commenced treatment, and currently, I am clinically stable.”
“I have no travel history or contact with any confirmed or suspected case so far.
“Also, I have been in isolation and suspended physical contact with family, friends and associates since I was pronounced a suspected case. The Sokoto State Task Force is doing the needful.
“Finally, I want to draw the attention of my colleagues that we have probably reached the dreaded phase of community transmission. We should be more vigilant, maintain ALL standard precaution and STAY SAFE.”
Recall that Meridian Spy reported yesternight Monday that the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control NCDC confirmed a case; the first, in Sokoto State but gave no detail about the patient.
