Residents of Osun State are beginning to feel unsaved, raising concern over the continual record of new cases as the State Government, on Tuesday, confirmed 21 new cases of COVID-19, making the total number of coronavirus patients in the state 108.
The State’s Commissioner for Health, Dr. Rafiu Isamotu, disclosed the new cases in a statement on Tuesday evening in Osogbo.
In the statement, Dr. Isamotu said the new cases were contacts of those who had previously contracted the virus in the State.
It could be recalled that the state Governor, Gboyega Oyetola last Saturday ordered a total lockdown of Ilesa West, Ilesa East, Atakumosa East and Atakunmosa West as part of efforts to contain the community transmission of the virus.
The affected four councils are parts of the six local government areas that make up Ijesa-South and Ijesa-North Federal Constituencies of Osun East Senatorial District.
The Commissioner, however, appealed to citizens and residents of the State to always observe all the precautionary measures laid down by the State against the spread of the virus.
He also revealed that with the latest development, the number of confirmed cases in the State has risen to 199 with 108 active cases, adding that the State has successfully treated and discharged 84 patients while seven deaths have so far been recorded.
