The Governor, Samuel Ortom, who confirmed this to the press today March 28, added that the index case is a lady, Susan Okpe, who recently returned from the UK.

He said she is presently undergoing treatment.

The Governor further said the name of the patient was revealed so that people who might have had any contact with her within the last two weeks, would come forward for testing and isolation.

He appealed to residents of the state not to stigmatise the patient, but support her and anyone who may have had close contact with her.
