The recent data released by the NCDC shows that 26 new cases of the COVID19 pandemic has been recorded in Imo State. In reality, this new figure is not only transient but also a vicarious indication of Imo State's pro-active disposition in the handling of this pandemic.

First, the Imo COVID19 task force has developed deliberate strategies that not only check the spread of the virus amongst local population, but enhances  inter-state cooperation in fighting the scourge. The Imo COVID19 taskforce has remained vigilant in Manning our borders against any form of infiltration. It was this commendable level of vigilance that saw the interception of about 96 persons who were on transit through the State.

Fortunately, the taskforce has improved capacity to test suspected persons, and anyone flaunting the border restriction order. Thus, the 96 passengers were tested with 26 of them testing positive to the virus. While the positive cases are currently undergoing treatment at the State isolation centers, the Imo COVID19 taskforce has painstakingly notified the State of destination of the other passengers, who, as we speak, are under close monitoring at their State of destination.

At this point in our COVID19 experience, data exchange has become a critical aspect of managing the pandemic, and Imo State has set the pace. Note, that Isolation centres are not meant for none carriers of the virus, especially those who have been tested and certified free. However, it is important to keep close watch on our people and exchange critical data where necessary.

It is important to remind our people to adhere strictly to the travel restriction in the country, and also ensure that all other preventive measures outlined in the NCDC protocol are observed.

Together, we shall overcome this too.
