I AM NOT IN ICU, ONLY IN ISOLATION SAYS EL RUFAI AS HE SHOWS HIS NEW LOOK

COVID-19: I'm not in ICU, I'm recovering in Kaduna - El-Rufai

Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, has debunked reports that he is now in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in Lagos, as his coronavirus case worsened.

The governor in a post on his verified Facebook page on Monday, said he is currently undergoing treatment for the disease at government house in Kaduna.

According to El-Rufai: “Earlier today, I took 2 hours out of isolation to attend the daily virtual meeting of State Standing Committee on Covid-19, chaired by Deputy Governor @DrHadiza Balarabe.

“Since there is some fake news circulating that I am in an ICU in a Lagos Hospital, a nice ICU picture will help debunk the evil news!

“For the avoidance of any doubt, I have been isolated for the past 24 days in a wing of the Government House, Kaduna undergoing treatment for coronavirus from doctors of the State Ministry of Health.

“As the pictures show, I have not shaved since I went into isolation so that I will have a new Covid-19 look to remember when this pandemic passes, as it surely will by the Grace of God.

“I appreciate these dedicated public servants as well as all those that called or sent messages expressing concern and sympathy, but I am fine and getting better every passing day. Alhamdulillah. – Nasir @elrufai – April 19, 2020

Recall, the governor had revealed that he was still under isolation for testing positive to COVID-19 and he is yet to be cleared of the disease,” he said.
