Fear as Governor Ortom's COVID-19 test result returns positive .

 There was palpable fear in Benue state as the latest result of Governor Samuel Ortom's COVID-19 test came back positive. 


This followed the test results of most of the governor's close aides who also returned positive in the last few weeks. The chief press secretary to the governor, Terver Akase, in a statement he issued on Wednesday, January 23, said although his principal has not shown any symptoms of the disease, he has already commenced treatment as prescribed by medical personnel. 

Those who have come in contact with the governor in the last couple of days have been advised to go for a test. 

Governor Ortom also said that it is equally important that those who came in contact with other persons who have tested positive for the virus should go for a test to ascertain their COVID-19 status. He urged Benue people to continue to observe the protocol for the prevention of the virus such as wearing of face masks, use of sanitizers, regular hand washing and physical distancing. The governor, therefore, encouraged the people not to be afraid of going for COVID-19 test as only doing so would help in containing the spread of the disease. Readmore:
