Benue State First Lady and Son Test Positive for Coronavirus

The Wife of the Benue State Governor, Eunice Ortom as well as her son has tested positive for Coronavirus. This was announced by the First Lady herself in a signed statement, where she disclosed that she has gone into self-isolation where she is receiving treatment.

The Governor’s wife has also advised everyone who has come in contact with her to make sure that they get tested immediately. She said, “A few moments ago this evening, I received my result from the tests earlier carried out on me by NCDC personnel on routine screening at Government House, Makurdi which returned that I, my son, and some staff are COVID-19 positive.

“We have from this moment, gone into total isolation as required by the protocol and would immediately begin the management treatment as advised by medical experts.”

“I wish to reiterate that being Covid-19 positive is not a death sentence as evident by the many recoveries recorded thus far; so there is no need to panic but we should continue to be responsible in our actions so as to keep others safe.”
