The Government of Edo State has said it recorded 15 new cases and nine more recoveries from coronavirus infection.
The State COVID-19 Incident Manager, Dr. Andrew Obi, disclosed this in a virtual meeting of the State COVID-19 Taskforce, chaired by the state governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki.
According to him, “Edo State, within the last 24 hours, recorded 15 new cases of COVID-19 and nine recoveries, with 615 active cases currently receiving treatments from various treatment and isolation centres within the state.”
Obi, who lamented the alarming rise in the number of confirmed cases in the state, urged residents to adhere to guidelines against the spread of the deadly virus to protect themselves and the elderly who are most vulnerable to the disease.
He revealed that all indices including deaths, case positivity, and the number of infections, among others are higher in the second wave than the first.
The Incident Manager said the state government is strengthening the enforcement of COVID-19 regulations in the state.
He reassured the citizens that the Godwin Obaseki-led government remains committed to containing the pandemic and ensuring the wellbeing and safety of residents.
