Lockdown should be extended, contact tracing of cases not fully achieved - Commissioner for Technical Education
By: Tetsoma Neyin.
The Delta State Commissioner for Technical Education, Hon. Mrs. Gbubemi Kpenosen Ikolo has called on Sen.Dr.Ifeanyi Okowa to consider extending the Lockdown measures, because Delta State unfortunately recorded three cases prior to the end of the 14-days Lockdown and contact tracing is yet to be fully achieved, stressing that if the Lockdown is extended, it will give the Government and other health agencies time to trace down these possible Covid-19 suspects in order to prevent them from spreading the virus.
"For me, the Government should consider extending the Lockdown because Delta State has recorded three cases coming towards the end of the two weeks Lockdown, and these patients who tested positive to the virus must have had physical contact with some persons who might also have contacts with other persons. If they are not track down soon, they will continue to spread the disease, and this can only be achieved if the Lockdown is extended."
She made the statement today on Monday April. 13, 2020 when Warri Voice Newspaper paid paid her a courtesy visit in her residence in Warri.
Hon. Kpenosen who expressed sadness at the non-challant attitude of Deltans, especially the youth toward the dreaded disease said that the Government has done remarkably well in his awareness campaign of Coronavirus , using various methods including local town criers to convey the message to the people in the rural Communities.
She compared Deltans to the story of the doubting Thomas in the Bible, saying that "it is rather unfortunate that with all that is happening globally, our youths, especially those living in Warri are still playing with it, because they do not believe that novel Coronavirus is real. They are even worse than the doubting Thomas in the Bible, despite seeng killings all over the world by the virus, yet refused to believe."
She encouraged Deltans to follow the precautionary measures put in place by the Government and other health agencies such as social distancing, personal hygiene, washing of hands with soap and running water regularly, making use of hand sanitizer and strictly adhere to the stay at home order.
Hon. Kpenosen praised the relentless efforts of Gov. Okowa for putting palliative to cushion the sufferings of the people.
"Gov. Okowa Food Bank Project will commence the distribution of food items hopefully this week to the most vulnerable in our midst. The Governor has set up Committee from the State and Local Government,Ward levels as well as Community Chairmen and prominent members of the communities, to oversee the distribution. This is to ensure that the food items get to the people for which they are meant, irrespective of political parties." She said.
