Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has revealed that four persons contracted Coronavirus from him when he was infected with the virus.
El-Rufai made this known on Saturday at the 24th edition of The Platform hosted by Pastor Poju Oyemade of the Covenant Nation.
He said: “I was the first case, fortunately, I’d say, because it served to scare everyone about reality. COVID is real, it’s not a joke. I was the first case, I got it in Abuja and infected four other people, all of us are okay now.”
Speaking further, the governor noted that all four patients have since recovered, adding that the state had tested about 400 people.
El-Rufai said that the state has received 169 almajiris from Kano and so far 21 of them have tested positive, adding that the state expects more to test positive.
He added that the state has been successful in closing down the border in reducing the traffic into the state.
