Benue State First Lady, Eunice Ortom, Son, Staff Test Positive for Coronavirus.
The wife of Benue State Governor, Eunice Ortom, has tested positive for the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Ortom’s wife, in a statement she personally signed, disclosed her status Friday night.
She said tests conducted on her came out positive and added that her son and some staff have also been infected.
“A few moments ago this evening, I received my result from the tests earlier carried out on me by NCDC (Nigeria Centre for Disease Control) personnel on routine screening at Government House, Makurdi which returned that I, my son, and some staff are COVID-19 positive.
“We have from this moment, gone into total isolation as required by the protocol and would immediately begin the management treatment as advised by medical experts,” Ortom’s wife said.
Benue State First Lady, however, advised everyone who has had contact with her in the past two weeks to undergo screening and get tested.
Ortom’s wife becomes the third governor’s wife to test positive after Delta State First Lady, Edith Okowa, and Ondo State First Lady, Betty Akeredolu.
