The Catholic Diocese in Sokoto led by Bishop Mathew Kukah, has given out a 30-room hotel to the state government, to be used as isolation centre for Coronavirus patients.
Sokoto State Ministry of Health tweeted about this on Monday.
The state health authority said it was for the purpose of isolating suspected covid-19 patients, to avoid further spread in the state.
“For isolating suspected cases at Aliyu Jodi Road and a 15 rooms hospital for COVID-19 management at their Gidan Dare Clinic.”
It said if well meaning Nigerians join hands with the state, the pandemic would be defeated.
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) had reported that the covid-19 case in the state stood at 66.
