COVID-19: Ebonyi Governor Umahi Wants Journalists, Guards Tested

EBONYI State Governor David Umahi has directed journalists and security personnel covering government’s activities to go for COVID-19 test.

Umahi gave the directive on Tuesday while addressing reporters in Abakaliki, saying that it was just “for us to free ourselves”.

The governor, while thanking journalists for their supports in the fight against the deadly virus, said that being negative did not make someone not to contact the virus.

“The supports from journalists has helped us in the fight against COVID-19, as we have come to live with this situation until it pleases God to show us mercy.

“Until then, we will see how we will re-open our lives’ activities in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic.

“You should be careful and choose where you go while minding the surfaces you touch, the ones you can avoid.

“I don’t even touch every surface in my house, but above all, our faith in God and no one should be afraid,” he said.

The governor expressed his pleasure that most victims of the disease in the state were recovering, noting it was surprising that the state had recorded 142 cases.”
