Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has advised residents to be careful of persons coming from states with high coronavirus cases, states like Lagos and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. He urged residents to have visitors from high risk states be isolated for 14 days upon arrival in the state. He noted that failure to do so would increase the number of cases recorded in Rivers.
This was contained in a statement on Wednesday by the state’s Commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim.
According to the statement, the governor stressed the need for caution as interstate travels and domestic flights resume in the country.
He added that recreational centers remained closed in the state and the government was examining the safe reopening of markets.
