The Anambra State Government has ordered the closure of private and public motor parks in the state.
This followed the announcement of the state’s Coronavirus index case on Friday by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
Our correspondent learnt that the location of the index case was unknown as of the time of filing this report.
After the result was made known, the patient vanished, a source told our reporter.
But the state government said it had started tracking those who had contact with the index case.
The Commissioner for Transport in the State, Christian Madubuko, said residents who disobey the motor parks' closure order would incur the anger of the government.
The statement read in part, The Ministry of Transport wishes to notify all owners and managers of public and private parks in Anambra State that all parks are hereby closed.
This is to ensure the containment and spread of coronavirus in the state. Please, all concerned must embrace this directive with immediate effect. Anyone who goes contrary to this directive and order will incur the wrath of the government,
