Enugu state government Saturday announced a new positive case of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state.

A statement by the state Commissioner for Health, Obi Emmanuel Ikechukwu, said the new case "happens to be another contact of the third case reported in Enugu who had positive travel history from outside Enugu." 

"These positive cases are related by the journey they had made to Jos as had earlier been reported. The surveillance team of the State Ministry of Health had experienced some difficulty reaching this particular young man who had been in denial and had earlier resisted being tested," Obi further explained. 

He said that the patient has been admitted for isolation and treatment. 

This brings the total number of cases ever reported in Enugu to 10 with eight active cases. 

The commissioner appealed to residents of the state to stay at home and only go out when absolutely necessary.

According to him, if you must go out, wear a mask, practice physical/social distancing, exercise proper respiratory hygiene.

“Wash your hands as often as possible with soap and running water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when there is no facility to wash your hands.

“Sanitize surfaces all around you as often as possible with a 1in6 mixture of bleach and water.

“If you think you are ill with COVID 19 symptoms or know someone with COVID 19 symptoms, call the numbers 08182555550 or 09022333833 or the NCDC number 080097000010."
