After about 25 days of self-isolation and treatment for testing positive, Kaduna State Gov. Nasir El-Rufai, says he has fully recovered from COVID-19 infection.
El-Rufai’s recovery was announced in a Kaduna State Government on Wednesday.
“I am delighted to report today, that after nearly four weeks of observing a strict medical regime, I have now received the all-clear after two consecutive negative test results” -Malam Nasir
“I thank Almighty Allah for His grace and mercy. I also acknowledge with gratitude the massive outpouring of sympathy, prayers and public support that followed the disclosure of the infection,” the statement said.
Persecondnews recalls that El-Rufai had tested positive for coronavirus on March 28, 2020, and confirmed his test results in a recorded video released on Kaduna State Government social media accounts.
He went into self-isolation as required by the case management guidelines of the NCDC, and since then has been under treatment until he was discharged on Wednesday, April 22.
Governors Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and his Bauchi counterpart, Sen. Bala Muhammed, who also tested positive for Coronavirus in March, had since recovered and released.
“My family not only went through the trauma of potentially losing a member, but also the risk of being infected as well.
“The entire family has been supportive as usual, while my many friends and colleagues from all over the world have sent their prayers and best wishes.
“I wish to thank the diligent medical personnel of our Ministry of Health and the Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital who managed my case for their dedicated and professional care,” the governor also said.
