Good news reaching us is that the Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong has successfully recovered from the coronavirus.
Recall that the Governor tested positive for the virus about a week ago. On Wednesday, his recent test result came out negative.
Dr. Makut Simon Macham, the spokesperson of Gov. Lalong released a statement on Thursday, 24th December urging all residents not to take the pandemic for granted but rather adhere to the safety protocols to curtail the spread.
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.”
