One close contact with Bauchi Governor Bala Mohammed has tested positive for coronavirus.
This brings to two the confirmed cases in Bauchi.
Commissioner for Health , Dr.Aliyu Maigoro, disclosed this while addressing newsmen in Bauchi, the state capital on Thursday.
But the Commissioner refused to disclose the positive case identity, saying it is unethical.
The Nation reports that 27 persons who had contact with Governor Mohammed have been placed on compulsory self- isolation in the state.
The compulsory isolation, which covers a minimum of 14 days, is to determine their coronavirus (COVID-19) status.
The Governor tested positive to coronavirus following contact with former Vice President’s son, Mohammed Atiku Abubakar who tested positive to COVID-19.
