Another staff of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The result was confirmed by the Bauchi State Government on Tuesday.

The Chairman, Bauchi State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr Rilwanu Mohammed, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the development brings the total number of active cases in the state to three.

DAILY POST had reported that a WHO staff last week tested positive of COVID-19 in Bauchi.

However. Mohammed said that the new case was through contact tracing of the first WHO official that tested positive after an earlier travel to Kano State.

“The new case is another WHO staff.

“This new case is a contact from the first WHO staff that tested positive because his contacts from Kano and Bauchi were traced and isolated,” he said.

The State recorded eight index cases, out of which five were discharged.
