Gateman who traveled from Lagos to Kaduna in public transport, tests positive for Coronavirus

Kaduna State Government has confirmed a new case of Coronavirus, a gateman who travelled from Lagos to Kaduna in a public transport.

According to the statement released by the state Commissioner for Health, Amina Mohammed Baloni, the fresh case is a gateman in the Mando area who recently returned from Lagos and had no connection to the first five cases in the state.

Dr. Baloni said the sixth case had traveled on public transport and contacted the authorities as his symptoms worsened. He said the patient has been evacuated to the state’s Infectious Disease Centre.” The Commissioner added that the latest case presents the nightmare scenario of possible community transmission of Covid-19 in the state as it would be very difficult and complicated to trace all those he might have had contact with while commuting in a public transport from Lagos to Kaduna.
