Akeredolu allays fears over confirmed case


Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has allayed the fears of residents over a confrmed COVID-19 case in the state and has enjoined them to abide by the laid down precautionary measures.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Ondo State Government announced a confirmed case of the virus on Friday.

Akeredolu spoke in Akure on Saturday in a live broadcast at the Government House.

According to him, the coronavirus is a real global pandemic that has no regard for status although being confirmed is not a death sentence.

“I must thank the people for keeping faith and working together with the government to fight this terrible infection.

“Only one case, it is unexpected, but we have duties to ensure that it does not go beyond that. Three additional isolation centers would be built,” he said.
