COVID-19: Oyo discharges two, re-arrest one escapee

Two people who tested positive for coronavirus have been discharged from the Oyo State Infectious Disease Centre, Olodo.

The release follows the second negative test conducted on them after receiving treatment at the isolation centre.

In all, 13 persons have been released from the state after receiving treatment.

The State also re-captured one of the two escapees, who tested positive to the virus out of the four interstate lockdown defaulters from the northern part of the state.

Governor Seyi Makinde gave the updates in series of tweet on his Twitter handle late Wednesday night.

He added that contract tracing has been intensified to recapture the second person, a 10-year old boy, even though findings revealed that the boy had boarded a northern bound vehicle.

He urged the people to call any of the phone numbers of the Emergency Operation Centres should they find travellers from other states arriving their community.
