Imo State has recorded another death that resulted from Covid-19 complications.
Although the woman’s details are unknown, the deceased was said to have
been receiving treatment in the isolation centre after testing positive
for the coronavirus disease a few days ago.
Confirming the incident, the Chairman of the State COVID-19 Taskforce,
Professor Maurice Iwu, said the woman was delivered of a set of twins
but after delivery, she couldn’t survive it.
According to Professor Iwu, the babies were however fortunate as to have tested negative for the virus.
While warning the people to disregard rumours that Covid-19 is not real,
he asked indigenes of the state to continue to comply with
precautionary measures put in place by the state government to contain
the spread of the virus.
Iwu also noted that Covid-19 cases keep increasing by the day due to an increase in sample testing in the state.
