The Borno State’s Commissioner for Health, Dr. Salisu Kwayabura, made it known that Hassan was tested positive to the coronavirus at UMTH’s COVID-19 laboratory and was thereafter declared at large yesterday, after his phone and that of his mother were not reachable anymore.

He was later found to be in a critical condition after a team of combined health surveillance and investigation backed by police escort, traced the patient to his family house in Gwange 11.

He was swiftly placed on a ventilator at an isolation centre.

Dr. Kwayabura further said that all hands are on deck in doing everything humanly possible to make the patient recover while a contact tracing and surveillance team has been deployed to identify others Hassan may have had direct and indirect contacts with.
