A former Nigerian Ambassador has tested positive for Coronavirus in Kano State, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje disclosed on Saturday.

This is the first confirmed Coronavirus case recorded in Kano.

The governor, who did not mention the name of the former Ambassador said the victim is 75-year-old.

According to the governor, the state government took the blood samples of 10 suspected cases to Abuja three days ago, with nine coming out negative while the former Ambassador’s test was positive.

The governor described the development as sad, pointing out that the state would take more drastic measures to ensure that the situation did not get out of hand.

He also ordered that tricycles in the state would henceforth be mandated to carry only one passenger as part of measures to prevent further spread of the virus.

“Indeed, it is a sad moment for us. This is an occasion that we are not happy with. I am unhappy to inform the people of Kano state that today, we got a patient who tested positive to COVID-19. He is a 75-year- old retiree and former Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“He travelled to Kaduna, Lagos and Abuja, and came back to Kano on 25 March, 2020,” he said in a report by The Nation.
