Jigawa State government has recorded another death from the novel Coronavirus.
The state’s Commissioner for Health, Abba Zakari, who confimed the development to Freedom Radio on Sunday night May 3, said the state recorded the second death from a pregnant female patient, a resident of Miga Local Government Area of the state, who bled to death as a result of the miscarriage she had at the Dutse Isolation center. She is said to be the wife of a Lagos returnee, a resident of Fanisau community in Dutse Local Government Area, who died from the disease.
Zakari, who is also the chairman of Jigawa taskforce on COVID-19, said the deceased was initially admitted at two different health facilities in the state before she tested positive to COVID-19. She had other underlying medical history before she was said to be infected by her husband after he returned from Lagos.
She has since been buried according to Islamic rites.
Jigawa state currently has 7 confirmed cases of CIVID19.
