Below is a picture from social media showing a COVID-19 isolation center in Kogi State which was destroyed by a heavy rainfall.
This comes after the State Commissioner of Information, Kingsley Fanwo stated that the self-assessment app built by the state has been used in checking the spread of coronavirus in the state.
“While we are not surprised that they have worked for us so far in keeping our state COVID-19 free, we do find it disconcerting that the lead agency in the fight is possibly expressing doubt in their efficacy while simultaneously denouncing us for following her own guidelines.
“In fact, we built our self-assessment app around the NCDC’s checklist for ‘suspected and high risk’ cases and as at last week, it has been visited nearly 200,000 times with over 14,000 completed self-assessments out of which only about 60 presented cause for further investigation which then failed to meet the COVID-19 spectrum,” part of the statement read.
Fanwo added: “We sincerely hope the NCDC and Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu will quickly come out to repudiate or retract those dangerous comments (whichever is applicable) in order to minimize damage to the mutuality of trust and cooperation which we need to continue working together through this pandemic.”
