A resident of Bonny Island, Tammy Halliday has said that there is no “credible activity” going on at the isolation and treatment centre in the Local Government Area.
The resident who made this known in a chat with Journalists yesterday said when he visited the centre, he barely saw people at the isolation centre as no serious event was going on there. Tammy stated that based on the statistics of the NCDC, he was expecting the place to be overwhelmed with patients, but was shocked as he could barely find people there.
He also stated that the state governor would have given residents more time to prepare before locking down the LGA. The state governor, Nyesom Wike had placed Bonny and Onne on a total lockdown after a meeting with the state security council on Saturday.
The governor said they took the decision as the total number of confirmed cases in the LGA was drastically increasing. He noted that something needed to be done to stop the Island from becoming the epicentre of the virus in the South-South region.
The state has so far recorded 874 confirmed cases of the virus, while 391 persons have been discharged with 31 deaths, according to the NCDC.
