Akwa Ibom State Government said two out of the 29 patients of COVID-19 receiving treatment in the Isolation centre of Ibom Multi Specialty hospital have been discharged after their test results returned negative for the virus.

The State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Dominic Ukpong, who disclosed this on Saturday during a press briefing, said those discharged were certified negative by the Nigeria Center for Disease Control, NCDC.

This has made the total number of survivors discharged in the State so far to be 16.

Reacting on the spike in the number of COVID-19 cases in the state few days ago, Dr Ukpong claimed that the activities of persons who came into the state under the guise of bringing in livestock and other food items must have led to that and commended the governor for placing a ban on transporting livestock into the State.

Dr. Ukpong also disclosed that they have seen situations where people arrive at the COVID -19 emergency center with sicknesses other than Covid19 because of the free treatment offered by the state government.

According to him, “People with ulcer, diabetes and other medical conditions other than COVID-19 do approach the center and when we examine them and find out that it is not COVID-19, they start pleading that we should take them in because of the attention we give our patients. Some even ask for palliatives, but people must know that those emergency lines are strictly for COVID-19 emergencies.”
