Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong has tested negative for COVID-19, less than one week after contracting the virus.

This was contained in a statement by the spokesperson for the Governor, Dr Macham Makut, on Thursday in Jos.

“The governor is now free of the disease after his latest test returned negative. The Governor’s negative status was communicated to him on Wednesday night,” Makut said.

He disclosed that the governor who had been on isolation since testing positive for the virus on December 17, 2020 thanked God for healing him of the deadly virus.

He also appreciated the citizens of the state, his friends and associates all over the country for their prayers.

According to the statement, Lalong said “Having contacted the virus and undergone treatment myself, I wish to reiterate that COVID-19 is not a death sentence as early detection helps to address it and reduce chances of death.

“We should not stigmatise anyone who tests positive or is suspected of having the disease. Rather, such people should serve as motivation for others to voluntarily test in order to improve the safety of all.”

He called on the people of Plateau State to take the pandemic very seriously by observing all protocols for prevention of infection and transmission.
