Ebonyi state has recorded it's Covid-19 death in the state

Governor  David Umahi who disclosed this  in a broadcast to residents described it as regrettable and saddening.

"It is unfortunate we have lost one person due to this COVID-19. We have recorded one death and it makes me so sad. The Unity Square treatment center is packed out, and even the Virology Centre".
The governor who also  ordered the immediate shut down of all Courts in the state  said they are to remain closed for the next 10 days to enable health workers fumigate the buildings and premises.

“I am directing that in line with the Covid-19 law all the courts in Ebonyi state be shutdown for the next 10 days. The Judiciary, State High Court, Industrial Court, Federal High Court, Magistrate court should all be shutdown”,

“Also, I advise all the Judiciary officcers and their families to undergo Covid-19 tests. I have ordered that all the Judiciary buildings and premises should be immediately fumigated within the 10 days”.

The Governor who advised marketers and churches to take the Covid-19 safety protocols seriously for their own good warned that any church or market found flouting the COVID-19 law will be shutdown.

“We are not contemplating closing markets and churches but I want to advise the churches, the markets, and other members of the public to take this message seriously. Sanitizers yourself regularly. Wear your face masks properly. We are also working on new facemasks that you give you more air but will give you greater protection from the virus. I have directed the Vocational College to get me some samples this morning".

While calling for calm, he stressed the need for strict adherence to all the pandemic protocols such as wearing of facemasks, social distancing, and regular hand washing.

"Please ensure you observe all the COVID-19 protocols. You may not be showing any symptoms, the reason is that your immune system is fighting it. The weaker person who may have been infected is our concern and it is our duty to protect such persons. It's our job to protect everyone in Ebonyi State".

"We are seriously working on the renovation of all the 13 General Hospitals in the state for the Covid-19 treatments in the state. It is not easy, but we must do it. Don't be afraid, just keep your faith in God and obey all the Covid-19 protocols". Umahi said.
