The woman ran from Kano to Jos. She is positive today. So we have a case.

Daser David
For the record, she showed a positive result from one of our quarantine centres. She was arrested and quarantined so we are still good.

The test result of the case came out positive on Thursday shortly after the State Governor, Simon Lalong, addressed the state, announcing a resumption of the lockdown in four days.
