Adamawa State government has now recorded its COVID-19 index case which has been moved to the isolation centre at the state Specialist Hospital in Yola
Though the State Government has not issued an official statement regarding the COVID-19 index case but the victim, confirmed his status in a telephone conversation with newsmen.
The victim had returned from Kano about a week back and went on self-isolation but was moved to the state isolation centre, from where he made the confirmation Wednesday morning.
Recall that Governor Ahmadu Fintiri had relaxed the COVID-19 order earlier imposed on the state about two weeks ago to check the spread of the deadly virus.
Governor Fintiri who revealed this during a statewide broadcast last week informed that people could now move anywhere across the state and workers on level one to 14 should resume normal office work with effect from Wednesday, April 15.
He also noted during the statewide broadcast that interstate movement remains banned, schools would remain closed and religious worship involving more than 50 people is prohibited.
