The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has tested negative for coronavirus but has decided to remain in self-isolation.
In a statement, Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, said the result was that of the rapid diagnostic test, while the governor awaits the result of the PCR test.
“I can confirm that the governor tested negative for coronavirus when he ran the rapid diagnostic test for the virus. However, we are currently awaiting the result of more conclusive PCR test,” he said.
“In the meantime, the governor has decided to continue to work in self-solation and he is asymptomatic,” he added.
Obaseki went into self-isolation and sent his samples for testing after two persons he met some days ago tested positive for the virus.
