The Chairman, Bauchi State Primary Health Care Development Agency, Dr Rilwanu Mohammed has said that about 86 out of 986 samples collected from medical personnel came out positive for COVID-19.
Rilwanu Mohammed said this over the weekend when he received two of the 107 renovated and rehabilitated primary health care centres from UNICEF.
He said “966 samples were taken, 85 of them tested positive for Covid-19. This is why we want our people to observe pandemic protocol.”
While applauding UNICEF and EU, he said, “They have partnered with $200,000 through Mutual of Understand. Out of this money, they spent $147,000 on COVID-19. Not only these, they have been equipping our facilities across the state.”
Rilwanu added that the Agency has been supportive in the areas of immunisation, community outreach, public enlightenment and community resource group. He urged the benefiting LGA to ensure maintenance facilities and encouraged usage.
