Out of the 10 people, eight have been moved to isolation centre, while the remaining two are self-quarantined in their homes.

Abubakar also said that 100 staffers of the hospital were tested last week, adding that some of the causes of the incident were that some patients were not entirely truthful about the information they provide, while others never used face masks during their medical visit.

He added that a part of the cause was because PPEs were also not enough. The medical chief said that doctors in the hospitals would stop attending to patients.
