Acting Secretary of the FCT Health and Human Services Secretariat, Dr. Mohammed Kawu, has been discharged from the Asokoro District Hospital, Abuja, where he has been receiving treatment for COVID-19.
Dr. Kawu disclosed this in a statement he personally signed and made available to journalists in Abuja moments after he was declared free of the Coronavirus.
It would be recalled that the Acting Secretary had announced that he and some members of his family had contracted the disease about two weeks ago.
The statement says final tests conducted on him and family members returned negative which prompted their discharge.
Dr. Kawu who warned against stigmatising victims of the disease, appealed to residents to follows all the extant guidelines of hand washing, sanitising, maintaining physical distance, wearing facial masks and staying at home.
