Wole Oyebamiji, secretary to the Osun state government has tested positive for Coronavirus.
The state’s Commissioner for Health Dr. Rafiu Isamotu made the announcement on Tuesday, June 30, while confirming 10 additional cases.
Dr. Isamotu who blamed nonchalant attitude of citizens and residents for the sudden rise in the COVID-19 cases in state, also disclosed that one patient was discharged after testing negative.
“If you observe, our cases have been on the rise consistently in the last two weeks or so. The reason is simple. Our people are beginning to be too casual about the spread of the virus. The lack of strict adherence to safety protocols and guidelines is one of the main reasons for the rise. As a matter of fact, we are beginning to suspect that we have community transmission around Ilesa axis.
“Government is reviewing the cases. Soon, we shall announce other stricter measures to contain the spread of the virus in that axis.
