The Chairman of the Bauchi state Primary Healthcare Development Agency Dr. Rilwanu Mohammed,disclosed this in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

He noted that the government spends N1,500 per meal for the patients.

He said the idea was to make sure that they feel more at home and avoid a replica of the protest by COVID-19 patients in some other states.

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

“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.
