El-rufai: I infected four persons with COVID-19

Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai, on Saturday, stated that he was the index COVID-19 case who infected four other people in the state.

El-Rufai, who was a guest speaker on The Platform, an annual event of the Covenant Christian Centre in Lagos, also noted that the state government took steps to get personal protective equipment for health workers.

The governor said, “Each and every case of COVID-19 we’ve had in the state was imported. I was the index case, fortunately, I would say, because it served to scare everyone in the state to come to the reality that COVID-19 is real; it’s not a joke.

“I got it in Abuja and I infected four other people. Happily, all of us are okay now. We are all back to our normal lives. We didn’t want to expose any of our frontline workers to any risk, so we have a lot of PPEs for all our health workers.”

He stated that the state government had provided N5m in life insurance coverage for each health worker who dies of COVID-19 in the line of duty.
