Governor Ifeanyi Okowa who confirmed in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olisa Ifeajika, said the patient was diagnosed in Asaba and is currently being managed by healthcare professionals in an isolation center.
He added that the sample of the case was taken to Irrua Specialist Hospital in Edo, and returned positive.
“The patient is currently in a good state and responding to treatment, and we have already began to track all those that have had contact with him,” Okowa said. “I am pleased to report that the patient is in stable condition and is responding well to treatment from our team of medical professionals,” he said.
