Plateau Governor, Lalong recovers from COVID-19
The Executive Governor of Plateau state, Simon Lalong has recovered from coronavirus.
This is coming barely 7 days after the state governor tested positive for the deadly virus.
The negative status of the governor was made known after he underwent a test.
Lalong’s spokesman, Dr. Makut Simon Macham disclosed this in a statement released on Thursday December 24.
Simo also called on residents of Plateau State to take the pandemic very seriously by observing all protocols for prevention of infection and transmission.
The Governor was quoted saying;
“Having contacted the virus and undergone treatment myself, I wish to reiterate that COVID-19 is not a death sentence as early detection helps to address it and reduce chances of death.
” We should not stigmatise against anyone who tests positive or is suspected of having the disease. Rather, such people should serve as motivation for others to voluntarily test in order to improve the safety of all.”
