Kaduna State records two new death cases from coronavirus

The Government of Kaduna State has made it known that the state has recorded two more COVID-19 related deaths.

The state Governor made this known via a tweet on his verified Twitter handle, adding that the two latest fatalities included a senior citizen from Makarfi and a lady from Zaria.

In the tweet made at about 11:00 pm on Saturday, the Governor said that the two more persons had tested positive in the state, bringing the active COVID-19 cases to 87.

He stated that the two new cases were a male from Igabi and a female from Chikun LGAs of the state.

The state first COVID-19 death was recorded on the 22nd of May, when a patient, who is a civil servant, reportedly concealed his travel history to Kano, died before the result of his test was out.

The state government has raised an alarm that most of the COVID-19 cases in the state had travel history and that illegal inter-state travel was widening the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

The spokesperson to the state governor, Muyiwa Adekeye, made it known in a statement that illegal travels increased the danger of community transmission of coronavirus as infections had been recorded in some rural communities around the state boundaries.

He appealed to the resident to be more vigilant and report any suspected activities or movement into the state.

He said positive COVID-19 test results have been recorded in seven LGAs of the state – Giwa, Igabi, Kaduna North, Kaduna South, Makarfi, Soba, and Zaria.
