The Osun State government led by Governor Gboyega Oyetola has closed the Isolation Centre in the state as the Covid-19 pandemic curve is said to be flattening within its border.
This was disclosed in a statement issued on Wednesday by the State Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Funke Egbemode, who announced the closure of one of the Isolation Centres in Osogbo, the state capital.
She however warned that citizens should take personal responsibility for their safety against the Covid-19 pandemic, irrespective of security measures being relaxed across the country.
The statement by Egbemode reads thus; “Although, the curve seems to be flattening in our State, it is important that we all acknowledge that the State of Osun is not an Island. Our land borders are opened, and that means that people move in and out of the State every day, most of whose COVID-19 status cannot be ascertained.
“Airports have also been opened across the country, which means that people from outside Nigeria can come into the country too from those nations that are still experiencing spikes in the number of confirmed cases of the pandemic.
