Covid-19 patients in Gombe have reportedly turned the isolation center in the state into a playground, as some of them were seen playing carelessly in their ward.
In a video going viral on social media, some of the patients who seemed not to care about their present condition threw cautions to the air and played, not minding the other patients in the ward.

If you recollect, some Covid-19 patients at the same center took to the highway around the isolation centre yesterday in protest.
20 patients took over the Federal highway linking Gombe state to Biu community in Borno state.
The patients were said to be protesting over improper care which according to them had worsen their medical condition within the isolation facilities and as such would prefer to get outside for self-medication and proper care.
An eye witness at the scene said:
“We in the community have been in serious shock knowing how dangerous this disease is.”
“Government should do the needful before it gets out of hand because the patients we saw today are really angry and we don’t know what could happen next.
“They were chanting that the state government lied against their status while some were saying they were fine. This is serious,”
