COVID19: This South-South State Record Three New Confirm Cases With One Death by Djpaparazy(m): 5:27pm On Apr 30, 2020
The State Government said the sad event occured within the last couple of days according to Independent News website.

Governor Udom Emmanuel made the revelation today, Thursday while giving update on COVID-19 in the state at government House, Uyo.

The new death brings to two, the total number of Akwa Ibom people who have lost their lives to COVID-19.

Emmanuel who said that the state now has six active cases, explained that the three new cases recorded were as a result of the ongoing contact tracing exercise in the state.

“On the last laboratory test we conducted on 44 suspected cases, three persons were confirmed positive, while we lost one.

“The patient we lost was a 68 year old woman who was transferred to the centre, totally unconscious. With multiple serious long outstanding comorbidity.

“And i want to use this opportunity to appeal to doctors please, whether it is COVID-19 or not, once the illness is beyond what your experience and facility can carry, seek the help of your colleagues.

“We would not accept cases of dumping any longer. A situation where you bring a patient with total unconsciousness, and few hours later, the person would just give up the ghost, we wont accept that any longer!”. He cautioned

Governor Emmanuel however reported that the state has recorded remarkable successes in terms of treatment of minor symtoms. “Our recovery rate is remarkable. Only God can help the entire world”. He added

He stressed the determination of the state government to continue to provide the state with excellent medical care, while also encouraging Akwa Ibom people to continue to follow all necessary preventative measures.

The Governor used the occasion to reiterate that passenger’s traffic remains embargoed, as ban on interstate transport services has not been lifted. Warning that anyone caught, would be detained for 14 days.

“No passenger movement. No motor park should load or offload, else we would keep you for 14 days. Except those on essential services such as medicals, foodstuffs and media,” he said.
