CAN Chairman In Adamawa Tests Positive For COVID-19
The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Adamawa State, Bishop Dami Mamza, has tested positive for COVID-19.
Mamza, who is also the Catholic Bishop of Yola Diocese and a member of the state’s COVID-19 Containment Committee, confirmed this in a statement on Sunday.
He disclosed that his COVID-19 status was confirmed by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), adding that he has decided to go into self-isolation.
According to the clergyman, one lesson for the people is that they should appreciate and understand the importance of making themselves available for testing if need be.
While noting that testing positive for the virus was not a death sentence, the bishop urged the people to pray for him and all who tested positive for the disease.
He also urged them to take the preventive measures seriously in order to curb the spread of coronavirus in the state.
