Edo State has recorded five deaths and 113 recoveries from the second wave of coronavirus (COVID) pandemic since December 1, 2020, even as the state government intensifies efforts to contain the spread of the virus.
The Edo State COVID-19 Incident Manager, Dr. Andrew Obi, disclosed this at a briefing of the state’s Emergency Operation Centre (EOC) headed by Governor Godwin Obaseki.
“Edo State has recorded 234 cases of coronavirus since December 1, 2020 when the state government started tracking the second wave of the pandemic. From then the state has had two per cent fatality rate and case positivity rate of 23.1 per cent.
“We have 121 active cases, 113 recoveries and five deaths from coronavirus since the second wave of the pandemic,” he said.
He enjoined residents to take the second wave of the pandemic seriously, noting that the rate of positive cases since the beginning of the year was worrisome.
