Emir Of Daura Rushed To Intensive Care Unit Of Federal Medical Centre In Katsina Over COVID-19
The Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Farouk Umar, has been hospitalised at the Intensive Care Unit of the Federal Medical Centre in Kastina State.
Daura is the hometown of President Muhammadu Buhari.
A palace source told SaharaReporters on Tuesday that Umar was rushed to the hospital on Monday night in a critical condition.
The emir is said to have contracted COVID-19 from Kastina State index case, Dr Aminu Yakubu, a Daura-based private medical practitioner, who died of the virus last month.
SaharaReporters gathered that the late Yakubu was the personal physician of Emir Umar and had met with him and his first wife, Hajiya Binta Umar, shortly before he died.
The wife also died two weeks after.
