Commissioner for Health, Dr Aminu Tsanyawa, confirmed the development on Friday in a statement by the Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Hadiza Namad.

The commissioner advised the general public to keep social distancing, avoid overcrowding and stay at home to keep safe as it continues to take measures to contain the spread of the disease in the state.

In Kaduna State, however, the Ministry of Health on Friday announced the discharge of three patients who have recovered from coronavirus.

The three patients were among the six persons that have tested positive for COVID-19 in the state. They have tested negative for two consecutive tests and have now been discharged.

A statement signed by the state Commissioner for Health, Amina Baloni, disclosed that this brings to four, the number of persons Kaduna State has discharged this week.

The statement added that there are now only two cases of COVID-19 that are yet to be discharged.

“I wish to acknowledge the efforts of the medical team, surveillance teams, members of the Emergency Operations Committee and other stakeholders involved in the efforts of the Ministry of Health to manage and contain COVID-19.

“The Kaduna State government wishes to remind residents of Kaduna State that it is safer and cheaper to observe preventive measures than to treat COVID-19. Citizens are advised to wash their hands regularly with soap and water and observe social distancing.”
