As the Delta State Government intensifies efforts at stemming the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, these are not the best of times for the first family in the State.

The State Government announced on Friday that one of the children of the Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has tested positive to the virus.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Olisa Ifeajika, in Asaba, said, “consequently, the Governor and his family members will immediately commence self-isolation for 14 days”.

“It is again pertinent to stress that COVID-19 is real, and citizens are advised to be disciplined and comply with the protocols of wearing Face Masks and maintaining physical-distancing while in public places as well as basic hygiene of hand-washing with soap in running water and use of alcohol-based sanitisers as NCDC regulation demands,” Ifeajika added.
