Expect a spike of positive Covid-19 cases in Anambra – Obiano

Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano has said that there will be a spike in the number of positive cases of COVID-19 in the state.

The governor who stated this on Monday during a state-wide broadcast said, the increase of numbers would be due to the aggressive community contact tracing by the COVID -19 Committee, which he heads.

According to Obiano, the only coronavirus death recorded so far in the state was a 66-year old man who did not report his ill-health on time.

“His case was reported late to the hospital and by the time his result came back positive, 24 hours later, he had passed away.

“There is a possibility that his case would have been managed well if our team had been alerted on time. I urge you to cooperate with our efforts to protect lives. People who hide their medical conditions run a high risk of dying from Covid-19. Please, let us bear this in mind.

“It is important to note that the rise in the reported cases of COVID-19 in Anambra State is as a result of the Aggressive Case Search mounted by the Special Task Force on COVID-19, headed by my humble self.

“Following the success of the Task Force at the state level, we have since extended our activities to the 326 wards in Anambra State for a more aggressive campaign against the pandemic
