13 Imo lawmakers reportedly test positive for Covid-19

No fewer than 13 out of the 27 members of Imo Assembly have tested positive for coronavirus.

It was gathered the 13 tested positive on Monday when test was conducted on them.

In a swift reaction, the Special Adviser on Media to the Speaker, Emeka Ahaneku said the figure was outrageous, adding that only three members tested positive.

He said that many staff and members, who had undergone the test on Monday, turned out negative.

“It is true that there are incidences of Covid -19 in the House but they are not up to five. The number people are quoting is outrageous.

“A lot of staff and members were tested on Monday and results are yet to be released.  So I don’t
know where they are getting the number they are quoting” he said.

He however said that those who tested positive have been moved to the Isolation centre in Owerri.
