She said: “The new cases are among almajiri who were recently repatriated from Kano.
“The contacts of the new cases are being traced so that they can be monitored and tested if they meet the case definition.
“The new patients have been moved to the Infectious Diseases Control Centre, the state’s premier isolation centre.
“Our medical professionals are treating them with high standards and we wish all our nine active cases speedy recovery.”
“Testing capacity has improved in the state. Two labs, one each in Kaduna and Zaria, have been accredited by NCDC to conduct Covid-19 tests.
“The Ministry of Health wishes to remind the general public of the importance of hand-washing, personal hygiene, social distancing and the avoidance of large gatherings in helping protect us all from Covid-19. It is important to stay home, stay safe and save lives,” Baloni urged Kaduna residents.
