Fri Mar 20th, 2020 - Taraba

The Taraba State Government has joined the state governments seeking ways and means of curbing the spread of Covid-19 by establishing two isolation centres.

The centres are located in the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) and the State Specialist Hospital in Jalingo. The state capital Commissioner for Health, Dr. Innocent Vakkai, who disclosed this yesterday while briefing newsmen on the measures so far put in place to contain the pandemic, said the isolation centres were designed for any eventuality.

He noted that Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku has directed that adequate measures be put in place to ensure prompt detection of suspected cases of Covid-19 should the virus spread to the state.
