COVID-19: I am negative, says Obi of Onitsha

The traditional ruler of Onitsha, Obi Nnaemeka Achebe, on Thursday, said he had tested negative for the coronavirus.

Achebe made the disclosure when members of the Anambra State COVID-19 Action Team, led by the State Commissioner for Health, Dr Vincent Okpala, visited the State traditional rulers’ council in Awka, Anambra State.

He also explained that it is only through the test that all doubts about coronavirus can be cleared, and early detection ensured, and treatment guaranteed.

“I have gone for COVID-19 test and I am tested negative.

“It is only when you are tested that you will know your status,” he said.

Igwe Achebe, who is the chairman, Anambra State Traditional Council, said the new molecular lab can check the increasing cases of the virus.
