Abba-Jato said others patients who were recovering from the disease were expected to be discharged on Monday when their final test results would be out.

He also announced that out of the over 100 travellers that entered the state during the lockdown and were kept in quarantine for 14 days, seven tested positive to the virus while the rest were allowed to go.
