Ebonyi State Governor, Chief Dave Umahi, Friday suspended large gatherings in the state following the arrival of the second wave of COVID-19 in the country.
Briefing journalists in his office at New Government House, Abakaliki, Umahi directed the step up of testing for the virus.
“I am directing that we should step up our testing. Before the end of January, we must have accomplished the Presidential taskforce target of 450 people tested in each 14 LGAs,” he said.
“I want to let our people know that we must go back to observe all the protocols of COVID-19 as enunciated by the Presidential taskforce and also by the taskforce we have set up in our respective states. Ebonyi State in particular, I am directing that church services should not last more than two hours,” he said.
