Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has disclosed that he has tested positive for coronavirus.
Ortom disclosed the development in a post on his official Facebook page.
“This is to confirm that the result of my last COVID-19 test returned positive. Though I have not shown any symptoms, I have already commenced treatment. Let me advise those who have come in contact with me in the last couple of days to go for test.
“It is equally important that those who came in contact with other persons who have tested positive for the virus should go for test to ascertain their COVID-19 status. I urge Benue people and other Nigerians to continue to observe the protocol for the prevention of the virus.
“I encourage the people not to be afraid of going for COVID-19 test as only doing so would help in containing the spread of the disease,” he wrote.
