How We Caught COVID-19 Patients Who Ran Away – El-Rufai


Nasir EL-Rufai, Kaduna State Governor, has announced the apprehension of two coronavirus patients, who fled their homes in Kaduna State shortly after they were notified of their test results.

Recall that the Kaduna State Government had appealed to people who had tested positive to the virus to report at its isolation centre to commence treatment.

The appeal was made by the State’s Commissioner for Health, Dr Amina Mohammed-Baloni, yesterday after ge explained that the call was necessary as two people had absconded prior to receiving their test result which came back positive.

Confirming the development, El-Rufai in a tweet via his Twitter account said they have been tracked and were now at an isolation centre in the State.

He said “Security agencies have successfully tracked the two COVID-19 positive persons who fled their homes shortly after they were notified of their test results.

“Commissioner of Health Dr Amina Mohammed-Baloni has confirmed that both of them are now at the isolation centre.”
