Governor Nasiru el-Rufai of Kaduna State, yesterday debunked insinuations that he was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit, ICU, due to coronavirus, COVID-19, complications, saying he   was fine and getting better every passing day.

The governor has been in isolation since he tested positive for COVID-19 on March 28, 2020.

Governor el-Rufai on his Facebook page, said he took two hours out of his isolation to attend a daily virtual meeting on COVID-19.

“Earlier today (yesterday), I took 2 hours out of isolation to attend the daily virtual meeting of State Standing Committee on Covid-19, chaired by Deputy Governor @DrHadiza Balarabe. Since there is some fake news circulating that I am in an ICU in a Lagos Hospital, a nice ICU picture will help debunk the evil news”, he said.

“For the avoidance of any doubt, I have been isolated for the past 24 days in a wing of the Government House, Kaduna undergoing treatment for coronavirus from doctors of the State Ministry of Health. As the pictures show, I have not shaved since I went into isolation so that I will have a new Covid-19 look to remember when this pandemic passes, as it surely will by the Grace of God.”
