Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has tested negative to the coronavirus disease after coming in contact with two infected patients.
This was made known in a statement by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie.
Osagie also said Obaseki is to remain in self-isolation as the first result is that of the rapid diagnostic test while the governor awaits the result of the PCR test.
“I can confirm that the governor tested negative for coronavirus when he ran the rapid diagnostic test for the virus. However, we are currently awaiting the result of more conclusive PCR test.”
“In the meantime, the governor has decided to continue to work in self-solation and he is asymptomatic,” he added.
