The Kaduna State Ministry of Health has announced the discharge of three patients who have recovered from Covid-19.
According to the State Commissioner of Health Dr. Amina Mohammed-Baloni, the three patients were among the six persons that had tested positive for Covid-19 in the state.
They had each returned negative for two consecutive tests, and have now been discharged.
The Commissioner also stated that this had brought to four the number of persons Kaduna State discharged this week.
“There are now only two cases of Covid-19 that are yet to be discharged and we look forward to being able to do soon.
“I wish to acknowledge the sterling 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,” Mohammed-Baloni.
The Commissioner reminded the residents of Kaduna State that it was safer and cheaper to observe preventive measures than to treat Covid-19.
Citizens were advised to wash their hands regularly with soap and water and scrupulously observe social distancing.
Mohammed-Baloni also encouraged them to avoid large gatherings and stay at home, except it was absolutely necessary to go out.
