No Fresh COVID-19 Case In Benue – Commissioner

Benue State government, on Wednesday, allayed the fear of residents over an alleged fresh case of coronavirus, COVID-19 in the state.


The government, in a statement issued by the Commissioner for Health and Human Services, Dr Yanmar Ortese, said there was no confirmed case of COVID-19 in any part of the state.


Ortese said the report of the alleged outbreak of fresh COVID-19 in Benue was mischievous, baseless and a gross misquotation of the World Health Organization, WHO, surveillance officer’s statement that was intended to encourage COVID-19 vaccination.


According to the Commissioner, the last case of COVID-19 in Benue State was recorded in May and all the cases were asymptomatic.
