The Delta State Government has set up isolation facilities across the state over possible presence of the virus in the state. As at the time of this report, no single case has been recorded but there are fears owing to the fact that its neighbouring Edo state has recorded 1 case.
In a post made by the Media aide to the Governor, Mr. Ovie Ossai Success, Ossai noted that “This is not China Infectious Disease Centre, This is Delta State Infectious Disease Centres”.
He added that “It is designated as Isolation Centre in the event of any suspected #COVIDー19 case in Delta State. Kudos to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State for being proactive”.
Ossai adjourned all Deltans to “please make sure you Wash your hands frequently, Maintain social distancing, Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth, Practice respiratory hygiene, If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early”.
“Together we can be free from CORONAVIRUS” he added.
