Vanguard noted that the state has not had any other confirmed case of the disease since two cases were earlier confirmed in the state.

In a similar vein, Enugu State Chief Fire Service Officer, Mr. Okwudiri Ohaa has disclosed that the major hiccup his agency was experiencing in fumigation of the state was residents’ disobedience to the state government’s stay at home order.

The state, on Wednesday, commenced fumigation of designated areas as a means of checkmating spread of COVID-19 pandemic, under the supervision of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi who was at the Ogbete main market for the fumigation flag off.

The fire service chief, however, said that the exercise is impeded with residents still conducting businesses and roaming the streets.

Speaking to newsmen on the exercise, Ohaa said that the state government mandated and made funds available to the fire service to embark on fumigation of highly populates areas in the state to prevent not only coronavirus but other infectious diseases but the people are not complying with the lockdown order.
