The Katsina State government says tests from samples of the suspected case of COVID-19 in the state were returned negative.

The health authorities reported on Wednesday a suspected case of COVID-19 infestation involving a man who returned to Nigeria from Malaysia.

Giving an update at a press briefing on Thursday, the Commissions for Health, Yakubu Nuhu Danja, said that, “on Wednesday, the state Ministry of Health briefed you on a suspected case of COVID-19 and that we were awaiting the result of the tests being carried out.

“I am pleased to inform you that the result is out and it is negative.

“May I use this opportunity to call on all the good people of Katsina State to remain calm and be informed about updates on information on COVID-19.

“They should avoid spreading unverified information especially through the social media, maintain high levels of personal and environmental hygiene such as frequent hand-washing using alcohol-based sanitiser, practise cough etiquette and avoid social gatherings except where necessary.

“The government will continue to do everything possible to safeguard the health of citizens through the provision of effective health-care delivery.”

That's good, but it's better to stop telling us suspected cases, rather tell us confirmed cases.
Imagine if 100 people goes to the Hospital cause they have flu symptoms, would they report that?

Don't cause too much anxiety in the country please.

Nice one. The best solution to this breakout is to embrace it. Isolate the vulnerables until the vaccine is out. The rest of us could still go on with our activities. listen to THE PURGE by NatUrE

Good news... But won't it be better if they kept these cases to themselves until the results are out? Instead of causing unnecessary panic by revealing every suspected case to the public?

That's good to know, Buhari should plagiarize any country's speech and address the nation, that is not too much to ask. As we speak, the British Prime Minister is addressing the nation, BMC what is Buhari waiting for?

@iamdynamite, if the opinion of Buhari's ministers is sufficient at this trying time like you implied, then he has no business being President, you might be comfortable with body language, but I and so many well meaning Nigerians don't.

Always negative and the virus is spreading. Do we have the test kit before now? Abi no be our same unequipped hospitals and labs? Be deceiving yourself and think you are deceiving us. You are using 1980 test kit to test a 2020 virus and you want the results to be perfect and accurate.

Nigeria's medical practitioners are trying everything possible to ensure we record a case of this Corona virus in Nigeria but God pass them.

Any small fever they'd run to the media to report the case as corona virus before testing the victim... So much unprofessionalism going on in this country. Smh

Something tells me that COVID 19 virus missed road by coming to black Africa.

I prophesy that COVID 19 will be rendered impotent and cannot thrive around here.


It's sad that the Federal Government fuccked up by not placing tougher restrictions at the borders long before now;

But it's even more sad to realize that a lot of comments on the internet are comments of doom.
I mean what does anyone gain my making comments like;

*A lot of people already have the virus but they don't know.
*He cannot be negative, they are using outdated test kits.
*This virus will spread everywhere, people already have it, it will manifest by two weeks. We shall see.

I mean, am okay with criticizing the government for their non proactive approach but are they paying anybody for making such comments of hopelessness and doom?
