The index case of Coronavirus in Rivers State has been discharged after recovering from the deadly disease.
Governor Nyesom Wike confirmed the development while commenting on the arrest of two Caverton pilots who flew in expatriates into the state, an act which violated the executive order closing all land, air and sea borders following the outbreak of Coronavirus in the country.
The Rivers State Governor said the only case in the state, is a 62-year-old resident who recently returned from United Kingdom and entered the state through Lagos.
“The positive index case of the virus we had by the grace of God has been discharged. What we have now is another case of a 62 years old person who came in from UK and landed in Lagos and then moved to Port Harcourt.”
