The Plateau Government said that Hassan Sale, an aide to Bauchi State Governor, who resides in Jos, tested negative to coronavirus.
Gov. Simon Lalong stated this in Jos on Sunday in a statement by Mr. Dan Manjang, the State Commissioner for Information and Communication.
“When information on Sale’s disposition reached us, the Ministry of Health, Plateau State, swiftly acted by taking Sale’s specimen and sent it to Abuja for examination.
“But to God’s glory, we are today, Sunday, March 29, happy to announce to Plateau people and indeed the whole world that both the preliminary and the confirmatory results of the specimen standing in the name of Hassan Sale are negative.
“In the light of this development, the Plateau Government wishes to call on all and sundry to discountenance any misinformation about the status of Sale as regards Coronavirus,” Lalong stated.
The governor said that, presently, there is no known case of Coronavirus in Plateau.
Lalong, who is the Chairman of the Plateau State COVID-19 Emergency Response Committee, appealed to the people to continue to adhere to preventive measures.
