On Arrival, the State Ministry of Health was alerted, samples were collected for examination and the result came out positive on the 12th of May, 2020.
The Minister also disclosed that all the cases reported in Enugu State have had positive travel histories, while most defiled the border closure rules, thus finding their ways into the state as against the rules.
