The Osun state government has spoken on the new Coronavirus case recorded in the state.
In a statement by Rafiu Isamotu, the state Commissioner for Health, the state now has three active cases.
The commissioner said the patient sneaked into the state from Kano and the neighbours immediately alerted the state COVID-19 team.
“The COVID-19 confirmation test for one suspected case came back positive on Friday out of the 14 samples we sent for testing at the NCDC accredited Testing Centre; the African Centre of Excellence for Genomics of Infectious Diseases, Ede during the week. The case sneaked into the State from Kano State and the neighbours immediately alerted our COVID-19 team.
“Presently, we have 3 active cases in the State. The good news is that the new case on arrival self-isolated. Although he did not show any symptom of the Virus”, he said.
“I am appealing to all the residents of the State to always be on the alert, take charge and report any suspected case by calling our COVID-19 hotlines. Let us desist from accommodating people in our homes no matter who they are and stop inviting your family and friends to return to the State at this time as this might be dangerous”, he said.
