A three- year- old has tested positive for coronavirus in Ebonyi, becoming the eighth case recorded in the state, The Nation reports.

Governor David Umahi stated this in a broadcast on the state’s broadcast stations after the Security/Covid-19 Committee meeting on Wednesday

According to the Governor, the child is one of the two children of a positive couple confirmed positive last week.

He said the child tested positive on May 11.

Umahi however lamented that the parents have refused to release the second child and continued to breastfeed him in their isolation room.

He said: “As at today, we have a total of eight cases. Three of the cases are very sympathetic because it involves a man and the wife. The man and the wife have two little children; one is a year plus, the other one is three years.

“Then we tested the man and the woman. In fact, we took the woman and the man followed to perform his husbandry role and we tested them and both of them tested positives. Now, that is the 6th and 7th cases”.

“On 11th of this month, one of the kids; the three year old tested positive now left with the little child of a year and half. The doctors have been battling because the child that tested negative is still sucking breast and the Doctors have preached everything to the father and the mother to isolate the little child since that child tested negative twice”

“We even promised that the state will support the little child if they can bring the child care or we provide one but they have held the child”.

“Even through our CCT monitor, they will remove the child’s shirt and then be breastfeeding the child. We don’t know what to do in that kind of circumstance”, Umahi said.

Governor also revealed he and his Énugu counterpart, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi are planning on erecting a fence at the border to prevent people from crossing from one state to other.

“I spoke with Enugu Governor and we agreed to share building of gate together and it is still on my mind to build gates at our borders so that when we lock it, we just go home. We will build it in such a way that even if you want to go through the bush, you cannot pass.

“I am going to be very strict on these border restrictions. If there were restriction of borders, we wouldn’t have even one case in Ebonyi state and that is the truth”.
