Kaduna health commissioner tests positive for COVID-19

Amina Mohammed-Baloni, Kaduna State Commissioner for Health has tested positive for COVID-19.

The commissioner disclosed this on her Twitter handle on Friday, adding that she has gone into isolation.

“Following notification that I have tested positive for COVID-19, I have proceeded into isolation for the necessary treatment,” she said.
“I look forward to quick and complete recovery from this infection.
“I appeal to everyone to observe the simple public health measures and COVID-19 prevention protocols such as the use of facemasks in public; frequent washing of hands with soap and running water or use of sanitisers; and avoiding large gatherings or crowded places.”
The development comes weeks after the health commissioner expressed concern about the significant spike in cases in the state amid a second wave of infections.

Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai had last year contracted the disease.
