The Secretary to the State Government (SSG) in Osun, Wole Oyebamiji, has actually checked positive for coronavirus, an official said.
Mr Oyebamiji ànd ten others were confirmed positive on Tuesday.
According to the state’s Commissioner for Health, Rafiu Isamotu, the reason for the recent rise in coronavirus cases in Osun can not be disconnected from absence of rigorous adherence to security procedures and guidelines by citizens.
” If you observe, our cases have actually been on the rise regularly in the last two weeks or so.
” As a matter of truth, we are beginning to think that we have community transmission around Ilesa axis.”
” Federal government is examining the cases. Quickly, we shall announce other more stringent measures to include the spread of the infection in that axis.”
” Today, we intensified our enforcement drive. All those detained were made to go through a required course on Covid-19 preventive protocols.”
” We will go a step further by establishing a mobile court to attempt and sentence lawbreakers of safety procedures and guidelines. We must jointly sign up with hands with the government to contain the spread of the infection.”
” Also, I want to verify to you that our SSG and some of the personnel around him have tested favorable to the virus. But they are all in stable condition and are receiving appropriate medical care.”
” With the most recent development, the variety of our active cases as at today, Tuesday, June 30, is74 We have 127 verified cases, out of which the State has effectively treated and released 48 patients while 5 deaths have been recorded,” Mr Isamotu stated.
