Oredo Egor Ikpoba Okha Lead in Covid19 Cases in Edo

Three main local government areas in Benin City, including Oredo, Egor and Ikpoba Okha Local Government Areas (LGAs) accounted for the highest number of new corona virus (COVID-19) cases in the state, in the wake of rising cases in the second wave of the pandemic.

Edo State COVID-19 Incident Manager, Dr. Andrew Obi, disclosed this in a briefing with the Emergency Operations Centre, chaired by Governor Godwin Obaseki.

According to him, “We have 30 new COVID-19 cases. Of these, 8 persons tested positive to the virus from Oredo LGA; 8 from Egor and 7 from Ikpoba Okha, while the 7 others were reported from persons drawn from other council areas in the state. This shows that the outbreak is more prevalent in the 3 local government areas.”

He added that there are 159 active COVID-19 cases in the state, noting that the state has recorded 140 recoveries and 5 deaths since it started tracking the second wave of the pandemic since December 1.

He also noted that just as in the first wave of the pandemic, more males have contracted the virus than females in the second wave of the pandemic. Since the second wave, we have recorded a case positivity rate of 8.7 percent.

“However, we recorded 8 new recoveries. Five of those who recovered were managed at Stella Obasanjo Hospital. Three people recovered from the Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital,” he added.
