Delta State Governor Okowa, wife test positive for COVID-19

The Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa and his wife have both tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by Coronavirus.

The governor announced this on his social media account on Wednesday, 1st July 2020.

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”, he writes.

The governor had gone into isolation last week with his family after one of his daughters tested positive for the virus.

A statement by the chief press secretary to the governor, Olisa Ifeajika, in Asaba had partly read:

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 the commissioner for information, Charles Aniagwu.
