A three-year-old girl has tested positive for coronavirus in Imo State.
Prof. Maurice Iwu, Chairman of the State Task Force Team on COVID-19, disclosed this while briefing reporters on Wednesday in Owerri, NAN reports.
According to Iwu, a family of six that comprised the father and three of his children that included the three-year-old tested positive for coronavirus pandemics.
In contrast, one of the children tested negative.
The chairman said that the child, regarded by the team as a ‘VIP kid’ would be preferentially isolated.
Iwu also said that seven active cases were isolated at the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri.
“It is important to stress that the coronavirus is real but not a death sentence.
“The team has started getting calls from people, informing us of those who are sick, which information is usually scrutinised.
“The task force is here to serve. We are trying to curtail the spread of coronavirus.
“We urge people to continue to observe all the COVID-19 protocols, such as constant washing of hands under running water, use of alcohol-based sanitiser, social distancing and the wearing of face masks.”
