The former Kano State Commissioner of Works, Muazu Magaji, who tested positive for COVID-19, has described his experience in the isolation centre as excruciating and painful.
Magaji, who was fired for gloating over the death of President Buhari’s late former chief of staff, Abba Kyari, disclosed that he was on life support at some point.
In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Magaji said he had been moved out of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in the isolation centre.
He said, “So far the excruciating part of this infection. The pains, the sleepless nights and sometimes life supports is getting over for me in Sha Allah… Alhamdulillah.
“I have been moved out of intensive care Unit (ICU) yesterday and now in observation ward!”
Magaji commended health workers at the frontline of combating Coronavirus and also warned that the pandemic should not be politicised.
“We need to understand that this is no ordinary disease and challenge and we cannot afford to toy with it or politicise it.
“Its treatment is unknown and often a combination of spiritual faith, physical exercise, traditional recipes and conventional medication. Between those, it’s working!
“The sheer challenge of managing patients that requires minutes by minutes attention while new cases are arriving is certainly demanding to our health personnel and Infrastructure, a situation that stretch even advanced care globally,” Magaji said.
