Good News: Taraba Discharges All patients with Coronavirus

On Tuesday the Taraba State government said it has discharged all patients with coronavirus from its isolation center after recovering from the virus.

The Nigerian Center for Disease Control, NCDC, recorded 17 confirmed cases of Coronavirus for Taraba as of Monday, with one discharged so far.

But Deputy Governor of Taraba, Haruna Manu, said the patients have been discharged after positive treatment protocols and test series that returned negative and declared them free of the virus.

Speaking in a statewide broadcast on Tuesday, Manu said the development meant that there is no active coronavirus case in the state, adding that the feat was achieved with concerted efforts of the government, health workers in the frontline against the virus and other stakeholders in the state.

He thanked the citizens for their adherence to health and safety measures put in place by health experts and the Government but warned that the state was still at risk of the pandemic if citizens lower the bar on all safety and precautionary measures.

“It is important for me to say that even with the present zero active cases of COVID-19 infection in the state, we cannot yet say that we are completely free of the risk of infection.

“We must, therefore, remain committed to those international protocols introduced by the World Health Organisation and which have been domesticated to serve our needs and purpose in the state,” he said.
