COVID-19: Borno Govt orders total lockdown, shuts borders

Two Borno State residents declared missing after testing positive for coronavirus have been found.

The state’s Commissioner for Information, Babakura Abba Jato, confirmed this on Monday during the COVID-19 Response Team daily briefing at the Government House in Maiduguri.

Jato assured that all patients are now at the Isolation Centre.

He recalled that Abbas Kaka Hassan, a 24-year-old male, was traced to Gwange II, Maiduguri.

A combined health surveillance and investigation team, backed by a police escort, located his family house.

The other patient, Hauwa Mohammed, a 42-year-old female has also been found.

“She turned herself in, in a very responsible manner, this is highly commendable,” Jato said.

Commissioner of Health, Salisu Kwayabura, stated that even though Hauwa was in self-isolation since her sample was collected, officials have been deployed to identify persons who may have had contacts with her and Abbas.
