The development was revealed by the Commissioner for Health in the state, Ikechukwu Obi, in a statement released in Enugu.
He said “Two more COVID-19 confirmed cases in Enugu State test negative as State records one positive case with travel history, in violation of interstate transportation ban.”1
“The Enugu State Ministry of Health announces that two more active COVID-19 cases, undergoing treatment in Enugu State, have tested negative and are being assessed for discharge from the isolation and treatment centre.”
“This brings the total number of cases in Enugu state now to 16, with eight active cases and eight discharged cases.”
He further explained that the two cases that had become negative were case number three and her son, who was case number 10.
“The new positive case was a 39-year-old indigene of Enugu state, who lives in Lagos state and made his way to Enugu in violation of the restriction order on May 13.”
“On an alert, since he was already ill, he was assessed, tested and the result returned positive.”
“The need to comply with the inter-state movement restriction order and other precautionary measures for the containment of the spread of COVID-19 cannot be overemphasised.”
“Enugu state inhabitants are, therefore, encouraged to continue to comply with the directives of the Federal and the state governments on restriction orders.”
The commissioner appealed to the public to comply with precautionary measures in the public health advisory as directed by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the State’s Ministry of Health.
