Twenty four health workers have been infected with COVID-19 in Ebonyi since the outbreak of the pandemic in the state.
Also, the number of cases in the state has risen to 503.
Commissioner for Health, Daniel Umezuruike, stated this while giving an update on the outbreak to Governor, David Umahi in Abakaliki on Sunday.
The Commissioner said a total of 357 of the infected persons have recovered and discharged in line with NCDC guidelines.
He said three deaths have so far been recorded in the state.
Umezuruike also added 3,369 samples have been tested in the state.
Reacting, Umahi expressed worries over the increasing number of cases in the state despite the efforts of government.

He frowned at the nonchalant attitude of residents whom he said have refused to obey safety protocols leading to an increase in cases.
