Prof Iwu Cautions The ‘silent spreaders’ Of Covid-19:
Former INEC Chairman as well as the current Chairman of Imo State Covid-19 taskforce, Prof. Maurice Iwu has said, “that the pandemic is being spread by people who probably do not know, they are carriers of the virus” (Nkiruka Nistoran)
The unknown people he described as “silent spreaders”
adding that they “are moving freely with us and spreading the virus undetected.”
The Chairman made this known while interacting with Journalists on Tuesday in Owerri,
Iwu also expressed disappointment over the way citizens are complying with the government guidelines on Covid-19.
“It will be wrong to say that coronavirus has been contained. Our people are no longer obeying government’s directives because they think that the tension has reduced. Let us not be complacent about the tendency of this virus. It takes people unawares.
“There are people who may be carrying the virus but have no knowledge of it. They are silent spreaders and are freely distributing the virus,” he said.
