27 iSON Xperiences staff, one other test positive for COVID-19 in Oyo
Oyo State government has confirmed 28 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state.
Recall that in the 339 figures released by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on Thursday night, Oyo State had 28 cases.
The latest figure has increased the total number recorded in the state to 190.
Governor Seyi Makinde who confirmed the development on his Twitter page said 27 patients are workers from iSON Xperiences.
He assured that the state will continue to deploy all resources to ensure that the virus is contained.
“The COVID-19 confirmation tests for twenty-eight suspected cases came back POSITIVE. Twenty-seven are from iSON Xperiences and the last case is from Akinyele Local Government Area. So, the total number of confirmed cases in Oyo State is 190.
“Let me reassure you, as Head of the Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force, that we are doing everything in our power to contain the spread of this disease, given the recent increase in numbers.
“The upside is that majority of the COVID-19 cases in Oyo State have relatively mild or no symptoms. This means that with the proper management of cases that we have put in place, they will recover without any complications.
“The downside is that when people are asymptomatic, they can easily spread the virus unknowingly. This is why we must all play our roles by adhering to guidelines on frequent hand washing with soap and water, physical distancing and the use of face mask in public places.”[NewsNaira]
