“This is in line with the protocol of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC). We had earlier discharged five on Monday and eight today.”

Adamawa State had 16 active cases until the fresh discharge of eight, bringing the active cases down to eight, out a total of 21 confirmed cases since the index case was recorded on the 22nd of last month.

The health commissioner confirmed that Adamawa State indeed has only eight patients at its treatment centre and expressed the optimism that they would all recover and be discharged soon
