Meanwhile, as the country enters the next phase of the novel Coronavirus management, Cross River state governor, Professor Ben Ayade, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), federal ministry of Health and the state COVID-19 response taskforce for the skillful management of the pandemic.

The governor expressed delight that the state has so far remained free of the virus.

The obviously elated Ayade who spoke yesterday during a meeting with the state response team announced a cash donation to the state COVID-19 response taskforce “for working day and night to ensure that our state remains free of this virus”.

He attributed Cross River’s free virus status in the first phase of the management of the pandemic to the proactive and safety measures  his administration had put in place.

Ayade said, “As a general treatment protocol, in hospitals in Cross River state, people are so well trained and equipped with public enlightenment. This accounts for one of the reasons for the zero COVID-19 case in the state.
