Kwara State Government has confirmed two Coronavirus disease cases in the state.
This was revealed by Rafiu Ajakaye, an aide to the governor of the state.
According to Ajakaye, death reports of a patient who returned from the UK a week ago with symptoms of the Coronavirus disease, and who was admitted in the Kwara State University Teaching Hospital, turned out to be true after the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) came back with tests results of the deceased wife who has now tested positive to the virus.
“Kwara State Technical Committee on COVID-19 sadly confirms two separate cases of COVID-19 in the state.
“One is the wife of the UITH patient, a UK returnee, who died last Thursday and the other is another UK returnee,” he said.
With this development, Kwara State has now joined other states in Nigeria with records of the Coronavirus disease.
