Truth About Video Of Air Peace Pilot And 'Coronavirus Passenger' In Kano

The truth about the video of Air Peace pilot and suspected coronavirus passenger in Kano has emerged.

NewsOne Nigeria reports that a Twitter user, Ali Grema had in a tweet, claimed that an Air Peace pilot in charge of a flight from Lagos State, Nigeria’s commercial city, to Kano, northern Nigeria, refused to open the flight when it landed in Kano until officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) come to quarantine suspected coronavirus (Covid19) passenger and others.

The twitter user had tweeted: “Happening now! #AirPeace pilot in Kano from Lagos refusing to open flight until @NCDCgov come to quarantine suspected #Covid19 passenger and others… well done Pilot! NCDC act fast, 20 million Kano inhabitants with Corona will be a disaster if care is not taken.”

However, reacting to the tweet, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s media aide, Salihu Tanko Yakasai, famously known as Dawisu, wrote: “This incident happened around 8 am not happening now. And its a case of a 1st-time flier who also has malaria. A team of CDC experts examined him and preliminary results showed its not #COVIDー19. The CDC will continue to monitor each and every situation in the State.”

The Director-General, Media and Communications, Kano State Government, continued: “The video of air peace that happened earlier in Kano is NOT a case of #COVIDー19. The pilot refused to open the doors when the plane landed after a passenger was reported to be vomiting, till a team of CDC experts came & examined the person & found out that its a case of malaria

“The CDC team also took precautionary measures by spraying passengers with disinfectants and also the entire plane, they equally took down all the details of the passengers in case of any issue that might arise afterwards. Kano is still free from #COVIDー19 but pls #StayAtHome.”

Meanwhile, the incident is coming a few hours after Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).
