No fewer than 24 health workers have been infected with Covid-19 in Ebonyi State since the outbreak of the pandemic in the state.

This is as Governor David Umahi, weekend, announced that his administration has approved N105 million for the purchase of medical equipment for Ivo, Ishielu and Ikwo General Hospitals in the state.

According to him, the availability of these equipment will enable health practitioners tackle the pandemic without any reservation.

From reports available, the number of cases in the state has risen to 503.

Commissioner for Health, Daniel Umezuruike who confirmed the figure while giving an update on the outbreak of the disease to Governor David Umahi at the new Government House, Abakaliki, added that a total of 357 of the infected persons have recovered and discharged in line with NCDC guidelines.

He said a total of three deaths have so far been recorded in the state.

Mr Umezuruike also added that a total of 3,369 samples have been tested in the state.

Responding, Governor Umahi expressed worry at the increasing number of cases recorded in the state despite the efforts put in place by his administration to combat the pandemic.

He frowned at the non-chalant attitude of residents whom he said have refused to obey safety protocols leading to increase in Covid-19 cases, even within the communities.
