BREAKING: Ondo records first confirmed coronavirus case







Ondo State has recorded its index case of coronavirus (COVID-19), about five weeks after the first case of the disease was reported in Nigeria.

The governor of the state, Rotimi Akeredolu, announced this on Friday via his verified Twitter handle.

He revealed that the state government received the report from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) shortly before he made the announcement.

Governor Akeredolu noted that the infected case has since been placed under isolation and would be monitored.

He urged the residents of the state to stay calm, adding that the government has put necessary measures in place to identify all the contacts of the patient.

According to the governor, the government is working closely with the NCDC and the infected person is in a stable condition.

He stressed that the government was on top of the situation and urged residents to continue to stay safe and follow all the preventive measures against the disease.

The Commissioner for Information and Orientation in Ondo, Donald Ojogo, also confirmed this in a statement.
Ondo Records First Index Case
 It is with great concern that the Ondo State Government announces the first index case. A suspected case tested positive to the COVID-19 pandemic.
 We thank God for His protection thus far. Ours has been a case of anxiety while we enjoyed a COVID-19 free State status.
 This development has, however, repudiated that enviable status even as we urge all to be vigilant and keep ourselves within the precincts of measures put in place.
 God help Ondo State.
