COVID-19: Osun SSG tests positive as state records 10 new cases


Osun State government on Tuesday confirmed that its Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prince Wole Oyebamiji, has tested positive for coronavirus.

The state’s Commissioner for Health, Dr Rafiu Isamotu, who made this known through a press statement in Osogbo on Tuesday, also confirmed the discovery of 10 additional cases in the state.

He was however quick to add that one patient had equally been discharged after testing negative for the virus.

Isamotu observed that one of the reasons for the sudden rise in the Covid-19 cases in state was largely due to the nonchalant attitude of citizens and residents of the state to laid-down precautionary measures against the spread of the virus.
