As the nation continues its fight against Coronavirus, three commissioners and one special adviser to the state governor have tested positive to Coronavirus in the state.

This was disclosed by the state Commissioner for Information, Ibrahim Alhassan while addressing newsmen on Tuesday, June 9.

Alhassan said the positive cases were confirmed  after 609 persons were tested in the state.

He appealed to residents of the state to take all precautionary measures as the state has begun to witness community transmission.

”Out of the 21 Commissioners, it is unfortunate we are having three. Of the Special Advisers, we have one positive case. Of the members of the House of Assembly, we are having five positive cases.

The pandemic now is within the community and we are experiencing community transmission. Therefore all hands need to be on deck to see that we fight this pandemic headon.

All permanent secretaries and directors in all the government ministeries and agencies are now undergoing the test. ” he said
