Covid-19: Suspected Cases Tests Negative in Ondo
All twelve suspected cases of covid-19 in Ondo State have tested negative.
The suspected cases included alleged case at Agadagba Obon in Ese-Odo Local Government Area of the State.
This was revealed during a meeting between Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and the state Inter-ministerial Committee on covid-19 in Akure the state capital.
The chairman of the committee and commissioner for health, Dr. Wahab Adegbenro said the state remained covid-19 free.
Meanwhile, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has ordered total closure of all markets across the state until further notice.
A statement by the state’s commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Donald Ojogo blames the new order on the refusal of some residents to stay at home.
The statement indicates that the total ban on all markets irrespective of any item takes effect from tomorrow until further notice.
The State government had earlier ordered partial closure of markets but excluded life-saving items such as food, water and medicines before the new order.
This is to further stem the spread of covid-19 pandemic.
