Edo nursing mother declared wanted after testing positive for Covid-19

Edo state governor Godwin Obaseki has declared wanted a nursing mother, Amaka Okoro, after she couldn’t be reached since her test results returned positive for coronavirus.

“One Mrs Amaka Okoro tested positive for COVIDー19 , is wanted for treatment. She is a nursing mother, who has a baby that is already coughing. She lives at #2 Atoe Idubor Str, off 2nd Ugbor, Benin City,” the governor announced at a briefing on Thursday.

“Mrs. Okoro poses a threat to herself, the baby and the general public. Anyone with useful information on her whereabouts should please contact the relevant health and security agencies,” he said.

Obaseki is also extending the dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed in the state to 14 days.
Some 20,000 people in Edo have undergone screening but 297 alone have been tested.

The state has approved payment of hazard allowances ranging from N90,000 to N300,000 to health workers, depending on cadre.
