One of my unpleasant responsibilities is when i have to break bad news to my highly cherished brethren. It became worse now that is about me.

I have been tested and confirmed positive for covid 19 today.

I have commenced treatment and currently, I am clinically stable .

I have no travel history or contact with any confirmed or suspected case so far.

Also I have been in isolation and suspended physical contact with family, friends and associates since I was pronounced a suspected case.

The Sokoto state task force is doing the needful

Finally I want to draw the attention of my colleagues that we have probably reached the dreaded phase of community transmission. We should be more vigilante, maintain ALL standard precaution and STAY SAFE.
