The Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Mr. Francis Nweze made the disclosure in Abakiliki.

According to him, he said that the prosecution would serve as a deterrent to other hospitals that may attempt managing COVID-19 patient without following the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) protocols.
