He also explained that all the new cases had contact with the state’s previous cases.
Isamotu stated that “recall that last Sunday, I said that the surveillance unit of the state’s Covid-19 team had lined up contacts for tracing. Our massive and comprehensive contact tracing gave rise to the discovery of the new cases.
“Rest assured, what we are dealing with in our state has no semblance of community transmission. But our people must observe precautionary measures if we must avoid community transmission. They must in addition to all other precautionary measures use their face Masks always.
“With the latest development, the number of our active cases as at today, Wednesday, June 24, is 18,” Dr Isamotu remarked.
Commenting on the summary of COVID-19 cases, the Commissioner said out of the 67 cases confirmed, the state has successfully treated and discharged 44 patients while five deaths have been recorded.
