The Bauchi state government through the executive chairman of the state Primary Healthcare Development Agency (PHCDA) Mr Rilwanu Mohammed has said the state spends nothing less than N4,500 daily on the meals of each patient admitted to its isolation centres.

The chairman said Bala Mohammad, governor of the state has approved the amount to ensure that COVID-19 patients in the state were well fed.

It will be noted that some weeks ago some COVID-19 patients were protesting in some states due to the poor treatment they received , including poor feeding, at the isolation centres.

Mohammed, who is also the chairman, contact tracing committee on COVID-19 in Bauchi, said the governor directed officials to make sure that the patients feel at home in the isolation centres.

“It was the state governor that ordered us that we should put N1,500 per single meal in a day,” he said.

“That is, N1,500 meal during breakfast, the same amount for lunch as well as dinner because he doesn’t want anybody in isolation to suffer or complain so that we won’t have any riot like in some other states.

“This brings the total amount of money on meal per day to N4,500 on a single patient.”

Mohammed said he has received calls from healthy persons who want to be admitted to the isolation centres because of the “good treatment” given to the patients.

He urged the people to always adhere to all the preventive measures as advised by the government and health authorities in order to contain spread of the virus.

“Recently, three people called me and they were asking that they wanted to be admitted in isolation centre,” he said.

“One of them was from Giade Local Government Area of the state and because we recently discharged a lot of people from that area, obviously they had given them information on how they were taken care of.

“All these people were pleading with me to come and pick them up and take them to an isolation centre, they said they wanted to enjoy the chicken, eggs, fried potatoes and all the goodies our patients are having while in isolation.”
