the sixth case of Covid-19 in Kaduna
State was diagnosed. He is a male who worked as a gateman in the Mando area and recently returned from Lagos. He traveled to Kaduna on public
transport and made contact with the authorities as his symptoms worsened. The patient has been evacuated to the state’s Infectious Disease Centre. He has no connection with the first five cases in the state. This case presents us with the nightmare scenario of possible community transmission of Covid-19 in the state.

It is very difficult and complicated to trace the contacts of a patient who came from Lagos via public transport and has had some instance of local
commuting since his arrival. The Rapid Response Team is trying its utmost to elicit from him a list of his contacts so that they can be traced and monitored.
He does not know who his fellow passengers from Lagos are, but the team is working to develop an
idea of his local contacts in Kaduna, including any vehicles he commuted in and people he met at the hospital he visited and within his area. It was in order to prevent and avert a scenario like this that the government has consistently appealed to the public to practice social distancing and directed commercial buses to carry no more than two passengers per row.

The government also outrightly banned motorcycle taxis and Keke Napeps because they do not satisfy the conditions for social distancing. In addition, government reiterates its advice against large gatherings and congregational prayers. Now that there is a case of possible community
transmission of Covid-19, residents must begin to take more seriously the quarantine conditions.
