Just In: Two children test positive for COVID-19 in Enugu

The Enugu State Ministry of Health has confirmed four new cases of COVID-19 in the state.

A statement by the State Commissioner of Health, Dr Ikechukwu Obi, on Saturday night, shortly after the announcement by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, said the four new cases comprised two adults and two children.

Obi said, “These new cases are two adults and two children, who live in Enugu and hail from Bauchi State.

“They travelled to Jos, Plateau State, with the case that was reported as the 3rd positive case in Enugu.

“This brings the status of positive cases ever reported in Enugu to 8 with 6 active cases.”

The health commissioner, however, appealed to the residents of Enugu State to continue to observe all safety measures prescribed by the NCDC.
