Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa and wife, Dame Edith Okowa, have tested positive for the novel Coronavirus also known as COVID-19.
The governor who had gone into isolation last week with his family after one of his daughters tested positive for the virus announced this on social media on Wednesday July 1.
He wrote: ‘‘My wife and I have tested positive for COVID-19. We are well and continuing with our isolation/medication. We thank you all for your continued prayers for us and our daughter.”
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Olisa Ifeajika, in Asaba had said, that “consequently, the Governor and his family members will immediately commence self-isolation for 14 days”.
“It is again pertinent to stress that COVID-19 is real, and citizens are advised to be disciplined and comply with the protocols of wearing Face Masks and maintaining physical-distancing while in public places as well as basic hygiene of hand-washing with soap in running water and use of alcohol-based sanitisers as NCDC regulation demands,” Ifeajika added
Also, two top officials of the government had tested positive to the virus recently. They include the Secretary to the State Government, Chiedu Ebie, and Commissioner for Information, Charles Aniagwu. Delta state currently has 965 confirmed cases of COVID-19.
