The Medical Director of Federal Medical Centre Keffi, Dr Yahaya Baba Adamu has recovered from corona virus infection after intensive medication and isolation.

Dr Adamu was reported to have tested positive of the virus alongside other health workers of the hospital few weeks ago and consequently went into isolation for proper medication.

The Medical Director who is now out of isolation and in a state of good health, had since resumed office to continue with his administrative and routine activities as the Chief Executive Officer of the Medical Centre.

His absence was seriously felt in the Hospital during the days he was in isolation because whenever he was around, he is hardly unnoticed by virtue of the passion he has in supervising activities of the staff of the hospital who hold him in high esteem because of his workaholic nature.

When report of his contamination of the virus became public, following publication of the news by Health Monitor, a good number of staff, friends and well wishers of the Medical Director started fasting and praying for his quick recovery.

Even though Dr Adamu is respected by staff of the hospital, particularly indigenes, a reason why a lot of them prayed for his fast recovery, some senior staff of the hospital did not wish him well, because of his patriotic and zero tolerance for corruption in the hospital.

However, the Medical Director who spoke with Health Monitor thanked members of the public for their ceaseless prayers for his fast recovery, enjoined the public to always observe COVID-19 protocol so as to avoid high spread of the pandemic.

Health Monitor recalls that in recent times many people have been in and out of isolation for testing positive of the virus.

Among those who tested positive but have long recovered from the disease are the Chief Medical Director, ABU Teaching Hospital Shika Zaria, Governor Solomon Lalong of Plateau State, Minister of Women Affairs Pauline Tallen, three children of Mr. Boss Mustapha SGF and Chairman Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, and a host of others.
