The Kaduna State Commissioner for Health, Dr Amina Mohammed Baloni has said that security agencies have successfully tracked down two Covid-19 positive persons who fled their homes shortly after they were notified of their test results.

Dr Baloni, in a statement said: โ€œthe man and woman involved are now at the Kaduna State Government isolation centre for treatment.

โ€The two patients had been isolating in their respective homes pending receipt of their test results.

โ€They both switched off their phones and remained incommunicado once they were informed of their positive test results.โ€™โ€™

Baloni encouraged all residents to take precautions and protect themselves and their families from Covid-19.

โ€Persons who get infected should note that Covid-19 is not a death sentence,โ€™โ€™ Dr Baloni said, adding that โ€˜โ€™persons who receive treatment promptly have a higher chance of defeating the disease.โ€™โ€™

โ€˜โ€™ Twelve persons have so far been discharged in Kaduna State after receiving treatment and our health professionals are working hard to ensure that others recover,โ€™โ€™ she said.
