The wife of Samuel Ortom, Governor of Benue state, Mrs. Eunice Ortom has tested COVID-19 positive alongside her son and some of her aids.

Mrs. Ortom made the revealed her status in a statement released on Friday night in Markudi which she personally signed. She said she is currently self-isolating, her son and personal aids as well.

She advised Benue state residents to take seriously the safety measures such as putting on face masks when necessary, regular hand washing. Observing social distancing and staying at home when there is no urgent need to step out.

Her statement read in part, “a few moments ago this (Friday) evening, I received my result from the tests earlier carried out on me and others by NCDC personnel on routine screening at House, Makurdi which returned that I and my son, and some staff are COVID-19 positive.

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

“While I have taken the responsibility to personally call everyone I can recall having had recent contact with to go for testing, I advise anyone who has had close contact with me in the last two weeks and the public to go for screening and testing.

“I wish to reiterate that been 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,” she added.
