FLASH: Kwara has recorded 2 positive cases of COVID-19 – Gov Abdulrazaq.
Kwara has recorded two positive cases of COVID-19 in the state according to reports from the verified Twitter handle of the governor -Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.
Mr Abdulrazaq further disclosed that both patients recently returned from the United Kingdom but unfortunatly one of them patients have died at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital on Thursday last week while the other one is responding to treatment.
In his words:
“Report reaching me from the Kwara State Technical Committee sadly confirms two cases of Covid-19 in our state. One is the wife of the UITH patient, a UK returnee who died last Thursday. And the other is a UK returnee who is unrelated to the deceased.
The report is based on confirmation received from the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) test center in Ibadan. We will keep you updated. We need you to stay at home and stay safe. Keep social distancing, please.”
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Health Blog can reliably report that the doctors and nurses who initially attended to these patients at the Accident and Emergency unit of UITH have gone into self-isolation over fears of exposure to COVID-19.
The fight against coronavirus is a joint task and we all need to play our part.
