The Imo State Government, Friday, set up six isolation centres to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
The six Isolation centres are: Okigwe General Hospital, Aboh Mbaise General Hospital, Orlu General Hospital, Federal Medical Centre Owerri, General Hospital Umuguma and the Ultra-Modern Well-being Centre, Owerri, Orlu Road.
Speaking at the Commissioning of one of the Covid 19 Isolation centres, and security patrol vehicles in Owerri, Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, said even with the ever rising confirmed cases of covid 19 in the country, Imo State has been spared from any confirmed case
This, he said is to the glory of God and the relentless efforts of the government and co-operation of the people.
He noted “Yet as a people, we must remain vigilant, creative and disciplined in our response to this monstrous virus to ensure that it never gets to our state and if it does, that we must not be caught napping.”
“As we focus firmly on Covid-19 because of its awesome potency, we must never lose sight of the fact that other threats to our collective safety and peaceful existence abound. Crime, other contagious diseases and disasters inclusive” he said
