COVID-19: Governor Nyesom Wike Declares Rivers State, Coronavirus Free.

Nyesom Wike.

The Governor of Rivers State, Barrister Nyesom Wike has declares the state, Covid-19 free, being that the state has discharged the only patient left amongst the two people who tested positive to the virus in the state.

According to a broadcast by him, he made the following points.

Following the treatment and discharge of the second index case in our treatment centre, I am very delighted to announce that there is presently no single case of the presence of coronavirus in our State.

This is real good news we must all celebrate and thank the Almighty God for answering our prayers and shielding our State from this dreadful epidemic, which has caused so much death and untold human misery across the world.

We are happy with the proactive measures we have adopted, which are the reasons for the swift and measurable success we have achieved in the fight to stop the spread of this disease in our State.

Much as we remain excited by our current status as a coronavirus-free State, this does not mean that we are safe and free from being affected any further.

The reality is that the virus is well around us, and probably, could even be within us among asymptomatic carriers.

This being so, we must all concede to the fact that our ambitious battle against the spread of the coronavirus within our State is clearly not yet over.

We must therefore not be tempted or pressured to lower our safeguards until the threat is eradicated and we are totally and completely safe and free from this pandemic.

Let me assure you that we are more than prepared, willing and able to go the entire length of the struggle to consolidate on the gains already made and ensure that we continue to keep Rivers State secure and free of this pandemic.

But as citizens, you must also not relent in your own responsibility to keep the virus away from our State. 

As Government is doing its part, citizens must also do their part by faithfully complying with directives on social distancing and the logical cautions on regular hand washing, use of hand sanitizers and wearing of face masks, as the case may be.
