Following the infection of the Secretary to the Delta State Government, Mr. Chiedu Ebie, with the coronavirus, the state government has embarked on the fumigation of his office to make it safe for normal activities.
The exercise was conducted by the state Ministry of Health.
Health Commissioner, Dr. Mordi Ononye, who was on hand to supervise the exercise, said full operations would resume in the office after a two – week quarantine period during which contact tracing would be done within the office to ascertain the status of the workers.
Dr Ononye said government was on top of the situation, disclosing that the state had the needed capacity to test and treat COVID – 19 cases.
He said the SSG and the Information Commissioner were in stable conditions and responding to treatment.
At the Ministry of Information, the Permanent Secretary, Mr. Paul Osahor, told our reporter that arrangements had been concluded by the Ministry of Health to decontaminate the office.
The PS said the office would be closed for two weeks thereafter for proper contact tracing and isolation, where necessary.
