A three-year-old child has tested positive for COVID-19 in Ebonyi state.
According to reports, David Umahi, governor of Ebonyi, confirmed on Wednesday and also added the child’s parents were the sixth and seventh cases reported in the state.
He revealed that the child had tested positive on May 11 but that the patient’s one and a half-year-old sibling tested negative for the disease.
He said the child’s parents have refused to release the second child and have continued to breastfeed him in their isolation room and that the government was currently looking for ways to manage the patient’s sibling.
”As of today, we have a total of eight cases. Three of the cases are very sympathetic because it involves a man and the wife. The man and the wife have two little children: one is a year plus, the other one is three years,”
“Then, we tested the man and the woman. In fact, we took the woman and the man followed to perform his role. We tested them and both of them tested positives. Now, that is the sixth and seventh cases’. Umahi said.
