The Katsina state government says the patient that was quarantined on suspicion of coronavirus has tested negative for the disease.

The patient had returned to Nigeria from Maylasia. He was said to have shown symptoms that warranted further investigation.

At a media briefing on Thursday, Yakubu Danja, commissioner of health, appealed to residents to remain calm, maintain a high level of hygiene and avoid spreading unverified information about the virus.

“On Wednesday, the 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,” he said.

“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 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.”
