Three COVID-19 Patients Die In Sokoto State

Firstly, following the outbreak of Coronavirus in the state, three COVID-19 patients have reportedly died in Sokoto state.

Meanwhile, this was disclosed by the executive Governor of the state, Aminu Tambuwal in a statewide broadcast.

Further, according to Tambuwal, the deceaseds had underlying sicknesses including diabetes, asthma and high blood pressure respectively.

It is with heavy heart that I have to break this news

to you this evening, of the results of tests carried out

by the National Center for Diseases Control (NCDC) at

the laboratory here in Usman Danfodio University Teaching

Hospital (UDUTH), whereby 18 tests were carried out.

But, unfortunately, out of them 9 turned out to be negative. Most of them,

if not all, are persons that have had previous contacts with the two index

cases that we have had initially.

In Addition, unfortunately, so far, out of the 54 tests carried out from

Sokoto state, it means that we have 19 positive cases. Meanwhile, out of these,

unfortunately again, we have recorded today 3 COVID-19 associated deaths.

All of the 3 are patients having history of some other diseases- diabetes,

asthma and high blood pressure.

Finally, we pray that Almighty God shall grant them His mercies and may

He heal those that are afflicted by this pandemic here in Sokoto,

Nigeria and globally.” he said
