The Plateau State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Lar Ndam Nimkong has cleared the air that there is no case of corona virus in the state for now.
He said the clarification followed some reports published in some newspapers recently that three Chinese who went on holidays, came back with the Corona virus to Wase in Wase Local Government Area of the state.
The commissioner, at a press conference in Jos recently, said that the Chinese who came to the country from China through Adis-Ababa via Abuja, were examined and have no symptoms of the disease.
He explained that there are 15 Nigerians working with the Chinese, adding that they directed that they should be isolated for 14 days also.
According to him, 43 people, including Chinese and Nigerians have been isolated in Wase Local Government Area as precautionary measure over the virus.
