The Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has recovered and tested negative for COVID-19.

The governor confirmed this in a statement he personally signed on Friday.

Mr Umahi also revealed that his daughter and three of his close aides who also contracted the virus have now tested negative.

The governor thanked God for his recovery and the people of the state for their prayers and support.

The recovery comes four weeks after the officials were infected by COVID-19.

Governor Umahi had on July 4 announced that he, his daughter and some aides tested positive for the virus.

Although he said they were not showing any symptoms, he said they went into isolation in line with protocols laid down by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

He, therefore, directed the Deputy Governor, Kelechi Igwe, to take over the coordination of the state’s fight against the pandemic.

The virus, however, did not stop the governor from working from home as he continued to direct affairs of state from isolation
