On Tuesday, April 7, 2020, the Rivers CSO/Media COVID-19 Situation Room visited the Rivers State COVID-19 Isolation Centre situated at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt. The isolation centre is a 250 bed-space facility. The team also visited major community markets to observe citizen’s compliance with government directives on the strategies put in place by the State Governor to curb the spread of the virus.
On arrival at the Isolation Centre, the team was welcomed by Mrs Ighodalo, who set up the facilities. Mrs Ighodalo informed the group that the Isolation Centre was about 80% ready. She said they were expecting ten ventilators that will be supplied to the Isolation Center in a few days. She was very receptive after a formal introduction by members of the Situation Room team who stated the reason for their visit. She was willing to have a conversation with the Situation Room.
Mrs Ighodalo informed that Access Bank Plc Nigeria solely funded the setting up the Isolation Center. She further stated that the Isolation Centre would be ready in two days as work was seriously in progress.
