A three-year-old coronavirus (COVID-19) patient in Enugu has recovered after testing negative to the virus.
The state’s Commissioner for Health, Dr Emmanuel Ikechukwu, revealed this in a statement on Sunday in Enugu.
Ikechukwu said that the three-year-old was one of two patients in the treatment and isolation centre in the state who tested negative to COVID-19.
He said that the second case that returned negative was a 13-year-old patient.
The commissioner said that the two persons were part of the 10 COVID-19 patients undergoing treatment in the state.
He said that the state government was assessing the possibility of discharging them from the isolation centre in Enugu.
“The two cases are the three-year-old and 13-year old contacts of the 3rd COVID-19 case in the state,” he said.
He said that the staff of the ministry had continued to work tirelessly to identify, isolate and treat COVID-19 cases in the state.
