Gov. Seyi Makinde has confirmed a first case of COVID- 19 in Oyo.
The governor through his social media handle informed the state that a patient has tested positive to the dreaded virus. “The result was released at 17:35 PM of March 21, 2020. Oyo State Public Health Officials are collaborating with the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan’s team, on the case.”
Makinde had two days ago apologized for hosting a PDP rally amidst fear of the spread of coronavirus around the worried.
“I want you to take two things home. And the first is; they are of the opinion that we should not have staged this rally because of the coronavirus pandemic but it was one of their leaders who said coronavirus has already infiltrated their party. We all know that there is no coronavirus in our own party,” he said.
