Anambra COVID-19 Index Case Tests Negative by BlackBuhari: 9:03pm On Apr 18, 2020
Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano has announced that the COVID-19 Index Case in the state, which has remained the only, has tested negative to the ailment.

The state registered its index case of the virus last Friday, while about 29 persons who had contacts with him were also quarantined.

But Obiano in a special broadcast to citizens of the state on Saturday said the index Case, after one week of treatment, has tested negative and would be discharged after one more test.

Obiano said, “One week ago, I announced to you that our dear state had recorded an Index-Case of the COVID-19 pandemic that has forced the world to a standstill in the past few months.

“Today, I am delighted to announce that the report reaching me from the Protective Care Center indicates that our Index Case is responding very well to treatment. In fact, the first post-treatment result from the Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC) returned Negative for SARS-CoV 2.

“However, following the standards which have been rigorously applied by NCDC since the outbreak of the pandemic in Nigeria, he will go for a second round of tests before he can be conclusively declared negative. We shall continue to remember him in our prayers as he fights his way back from this illness.”

The governor added that “As I assured in my last broadcast, our medical team has successfully tracked 39 people who had direct contact with the Index Case. Out of this number, 5 are in our Protective Care Center while the rest are quarantined at home.

“The people in our Protective Care Center are stable and have shown no symptoms of the virus so far. Similarly, the people in Home Quarantine are being closely monitored in strict compliance with the WHO guidelines on COVID-19 containment.

“Meanwhile, six people out of the 39 contacts have tested negative for Coronavirus. These are people who met directly with the Index Case 14 days ago. Ndi Anambra, this is something to be cheerful about.

“Similarly, out of 20 samples tested for the virus from Anambra State so far, only the Index Case returned Positive. The rest are negative. Ndi Anambra, this result gives us enough elbow room to fight this monster by adhering to the principles of Social Distancing, maintaining thorough personal hygiene and obeying government directives and policies on the COVID-19 pandemic. I have no doubt that if we keep the rules, we shall be in a good position to kick COVID-19 out of our dear state.”

Nice.

"Nigerian-used" Coronavirus is one that is contracted from an infected non-returnee from abroad.

It is not deadly.

Coronavirus is not for Africa.

End the scam lockdown already. Don't allow Nigerians from abroad to return home.

We are good to go!

U mean Obiano himself claimed the index case was negative, something is wrong somewhere

I just remembered that they will be having a second test to "CONCLUSIVELY DECLARE" something

Sha just know that test MUST be INCONCLUSIVE

The end is near

The tools of the devils are already in place

They need just to move the pieces just to fit their purpose, just like this coronaVirus lockdown shit

Do not be deceived that things is going to go back to normal again

This is the beggining of sorrows



Also don't be surprised when you see fake isreal being one of the first countries accepting the VACCINES

They are not the biblical isreal, they are there to distract and to deceive

They were purposely created 71 years ago to deceive the world in this end time

First the Antichrist will make peace between isreal and Palestine

And then isreal will embrace science and technology rather than religion

Do not fall for them
The True isrealites knows themselves even thought many don't know


I LL keep shouting until you believe me

And events that will happen between now and 2023 will prove me right

Good news.

Meanwhile, i just asked for financial assistance yesterday in the thread that ncdc announced the 51 new cases. I needed the cash alot but I just reluctantly sent the plea, still hoping that someone would send something anyway. Woke up this morning to see a 3k alert. Whoever that is, I know I spent time this morning talking to God about you. I will not say everything here but if you're reading this, just know that you and your generations to come will be celebrated for good in this life. Thank you so very much.
