The Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, has tested negative for Coronavirus, two weeks after testing positive for the virus.

Recall that the governor had disclosed that he had gone on self-isolation following contact with the son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

Two close contacts of the governor had also been tested positive for the virus.

A credible source at the state government house told DAILY NIGERIAN that the governor has substantially recovered from the disease, adding that the governor would be discharged from the Isolation facility at the government house.

However, sources at the National Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, told DAILY NIGERIAN that when a second test was run on the governor, the virus manifested some symptoms again, which voided the earlier test which declared him negative.

To this end, as it is now, the governor’s condition is still positive, pending the outcome of another test which could be run in the near future.
