Anambra discharges index case of Coronavirus

The Anambra state government has announced that the index case of Coronavirus in the state has been discharged after testing negative twice for the virus. 

Governor Willie Obiano made the announcement on Wednesday April 22, while serving an update on his administration’s effort to combat Coronavirus in the state. 

He said; 

“In my last address, I informed you that the first post-treatment test of the COVID-19 index case in Anambra state had returned negative.

“Today, I am delighted to tell you that the second test on our index case has also returned negative, following the NCDC protocol on COVID-19.

“Therefore, I have asked the Commissioner for Health to discharge him from our Protective Care Center.

“We have also made some arrangements to decontaminate his home to ensure that there is no further incident.”

Governor Willie Obiano also said the samples of 36 people who had direct contact with the index case have been submitted for testing. He also announced that wearing of face mask will henceforth be compulsory in the state. 

The Anambra State Governor said; 

“From today onward, it has become compulsory to wear face masks in Anambra state. Anyone who is seen outside his home without a face mask shall be guilty of breaking the Anambra state protocol on COVID-19.

“This principle shall be enforced by all traditional rulers, religious leaders, women leaders, market association leaders, youth association leaders and every community leader that has influence on our people.

“We encourage our people to make their own masks to ensure availability of masks. However, polyester and polythene materials must not be used in making masks. 

“Our irrepressible health care workers are the only army we have in this special war.

“These are brilliant men and women who keep sleepless nights that we may sleep with both eyes closed.

“On behalf of the good people of Anambra state, I thank you for standing strong for us all.”
