Kaduna State Commissioner for Health, Amina Mohammed-Baloni, said on Saturday that a four-month-old baby who tested positive for COVID-19 has been discharged upon treatment and recovery.

The commissioner, however, noted that there were still 76 active cases in the state as of Friday.

According to her, of the 232 cases reported, 149 have been discharged, while seven deaths have been recorded.

“The state has tested almost 2000 samples but case numbers are likely to rise further as more tests are conducted in more places.

“COVID-19 cases have been recorded in 33 wards in nine local government areas of the state: Chikun, Giwa, Igabi, Kaduna North, Kaduna South, Makarfi, Sabon-Gari, Soba, and Zaria.

“The data shows that 80% of the infected persons are male,” the commissioner said.
