“The four-year-old child that tested positive for the virus is a contact of another person who returned from Lagos.

“Also, out of the 38 repatriated Quranic Education pupils (Almajiris), seven were confirmed positive of COVID-19.

“So far, all the repatriated Almajiris that tested positive for the disease in Bauchi are from Kano state,” he said.

The PHCDA boss also told NAN that out of the 48 confirmed cases in the state, five medical personnel tested positive to the deadly disease.
