COVID-19: 3 members of Makinde’s cabinet test positive for Coronavirus

In Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, there are new concerns about Covid-19, as three people in Governor Seyi Makinde’s cabinet tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease.

Governor Makinde made the announcement on Wednesday 24 June through his official Twitter handle.

He twittered: “This morning we received the confirmatory tests COVID-19 for all members of the Oyo State Executive Council (EXCO). Unfortunately, three tests came back positive and two were inconclusive, so they need to be tested again“.

According to data from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), there are a total of 1,055 cases of Covid-19 in Oyo State, of which 755 are active, 291 have recovered and nine have died.

It should be remembered that Governor Makinde also tested positive for the disease earlier, but recovered after a week in self-isolation.

In the meantime, the government of Oyo State has postponed the date for the resumption of primary 6, junior secondary 3 and senior secondary 3 school in Oyo State due to security concerns related to COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Committee of Oyo State announced this on Tuesday, June 23, after reviewing the state’s preparations for the planned resumption of the schools.

Earlier, the state had announced that primary 6th grade, JSS 3 and SS 3 students in the state could be readmitted on Monday, June 29th.

However, Taiwo Adisa, a spokesman for the governor of Oyo State, said in a statement that under the new rules, teachers could resume the schools on Monday, June 29.

He said primary level 6, JSS3 and SS3, would now resume on July 6.

Adisa also announced that the government of Oyo State had inspected the schools to verify compliance with the COVID-19 prevention protocols that had been put in place before the resumption of teaching.

As cases of coronavirus continue to rise in Nigeria, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, the Director-General of the NCDC, has announced that there is no state free from the outbreak.

He made this announcement at the Presidential Task Force (PTF) media conference in Abuja on Monday 22 June.

According to him, some states that have not currently recorded a COVID 19 case will eventually do so.
