“So far, we have established about three isolation centres in the state. As God would have it, we have not recorded any issue.

“What we did was to develop an app that we launched and ensured that all citizens in Kogi State have access to that particular app.

“We carry out serious sensitisation and whoever is exhibiting any symptom, if you just simply log on to that app and follow the simple instruction, you will know whether you should come for any test or make any adverse report.”

Life in Kogi seems to be normal even with the outbreak of the virus in some of the it’s neighbouring states like Niger, Benue and FCT.
