Another Ortom's Close Aide Tests Positive For COVID-19

Stephen Amase the principal private secretary to Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Mr Amase in a statement on Tuesday said he had personally requested for the test given the increasing wave of COVID 19.

β€œOn my request, the Health Commissioner dispatched a team to my house who undertook the COVID 19 test on my whole household including other interested persons in the neighbourhood,” Amase said.

His disclosure came days after Mr Ortom went into isolation after one of his contacts tested positive for the virus.

The aide added: β€œThis was on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. The result comes out this morning Tuesday, January 12, 2021, and l tested positive. The results of the other members of my household are yet to be made available to me and you will be informed as soon as it is made available to me.

β€œMeanwhile I have called and informed all the people I had contact with in the past few days to please go for the COVID-19 test. I have also forwarded their names (those I can remember) to the Ministry of Health to track them to avoid further spread.

β€œLet me inform and beg such people I had contact with in the past few days to please report themselves for the COVID 19 test to check the spread.”
