Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau has recovered from Coronavirus exactly one week after testing positive for the disease.

Dr Makut Macham the Director of Press and Public Affairs to the governor said this in a statement on Thursday in Jos. Recall that Lalong had gone into isolation on Dec. 17 after contracting the dreaded virus.

“One week after the governor tested positive to the virus, he is now free of the disease after his latest test result came out negative. The governor’s negative status was communicated to him on Wednesday night,” Macham said.”

He added, “Lalong, who has been in isolation since Dec.17 appreciated God for the speedy recovery and thanked the people of the state, his friends and associates all over the country for praying for him.”

He quoted the governor as advising residents to observe safety protocols put in place to curb the spread of disease.

“Having contracted 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,” Lalong said.
