The Bayelsa COVID-19 Task Force on Friday said it recorded one more death, bringing the total number of fatalities in the state to 19.

“As at Thursday, we have 136 active cases in our isolation centres at the Niger-Delta University Teaching Hospital and Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Yenagoa with 163 cases discharged and a total of 19 deaths,” Stowe explained in a statement.

“Always keep social distancing at least two meters (6 feet) distance between you and anyone. Avoid crowds.

“Always wear a face mask in any public place.

“Endeavour to practice good respiratory hygiene. When sneezing or coughing, cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve at the flexed elbow or with a tissue, then dispose the used tissue safely and immediately.
