Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, says reports circulating online that he is in an Intensive Care Unit is false.
The governor, who announced on March 28 that he tested positive for coronavirus, has since been in isolation receiving treatment.
Reacting to the reports, El-Rufai said on Monday evening that he took some hours out of isolation today to attend a virtual meeting chaired by his deputy, Dr Hadiza Balarabe.
He also shared pictures of the meeting to further debunk reports that his health had worsened.
“Earlier today, I took two hours out of isolation to attend the daily virtual meeting of State Standing Committee on COVID-19, chaired by Deputy Governor, Dr Hadiza Balarabe. Since there is fake news circulating that I am in ICU in Lagos, an ICU picture will help! NAE,” he tweeted.
