Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has confirmed the second positive case of COVID-19 in the State.

He gave the identity of the infected person as Edward Manger, a staff of the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, who came in from Kano State, a few days ago.

The Governor who briefed journalists yesterday, said the confirmed case is cooperating with the State Action Committee on Coronavirus in contact tracking and has already been isolated and is receiving treatment.

He noted that announcing the identity of a COVID-19 case is to enhance the tracking of those who might have come in contact with the patient.

Governor Ortom said the State Action Committee on COVID-19 would meet tomorrow to review the partial lockdown and as well take further preventive measures against the spread of the pandemic.

He assured Benue people that nobody who is tested positive to the deadly Coronavirus, COVID-19 will be abandoned, as such persons would be assisted to access treatment.

The Governor urged residents of the state to stay at home if they were not on essential services, stressing that it was the safest way to prevent the spread of virus.
