Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has disclosed that 12 more Coronavirus patients have recovered and discharged in the State.

He said those discharged included 11 Almajirai, adding that the total number of discharged patients in the State now stood at 27.

“Twelve 12 COVID-19 patients were discharged today, including 11 Almajirai. Kaduna State has now discharged a total of 27 persons,” he said.

The governor also said 50 travel ban violators had been quarantined for 14 days.

“However, Kaduna State Government will no longer offer the option of quarantine for persons traveling illegally. Federal and state regulations prohibit all non-essential travel. All persons are expected to stay put wherever they are.” he said.

El-Rufai said the Standing Committee also appealed to all Kaduna State residents to cooperate with health officials whenever they were required to be tested for COVID-19, provide contact details or to submit for isolation and treatment, if they tested positive.

“It is a violation of the law and infectious diseases regulations for anyone to seek to evade testing or treatment. Persons who knowingly place other people in danger of infection or avoid testing and treatment are liable to prosecution for endangering public safety,” he said.
