The Osun State Government, on Saturday, announced that 12 out of the 167 suspects have tested positive for the novel coronavirus pandemic. 

The State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Rafiu Isamotu, disclosed this in a statement, adding that the 12 new cases were recorders in Osogbo, the state capital, Ile-Ife, Ede, Ikire and Ejigbo.

The Commissioner said the fresh tests were conducted in the last two weeks of the lockdown, noting that the lockdown has proven effective in containing the spread of the virus.

He said this development brings the number of active COVID-19 cases in the state to 13.

Isamotu, however, urged residents of the State not to panic , as he implored them to continue to comply with the stay-at-home directive and also keep social distancing, with strict observance of all precautionary measures to curb the spread of the disease.

He also emphasised that the ban on public gatherings remains in force, just as he urged residents to take the wearing of face mask seriously as it is now compulsory across the state.
