Three additional cases of COVID-19 has been recorded in Kwara state bringing it to a total of 14 confirmed cases with two discharged persons.
The Deputy Governor/Chairman COVID-19 Committee in the state, Mr. Kayode Alabi, said this on Friday at press briefing held in Ilorin.
ROYAL NEWS reports that following the outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic in the state few weeks ago, government had imposed partial and later lockdown/movement restrictions in order to curtail the spread of the virus.
According to the deputy governor, “Just today, Kwara has recorded three more new cases of COVID-19. That takes us to 14 confirmed cases in Kwara. Of these, 12 are active as we had earlier discharged two.
“All our cases are stable and in the best spirits. We want to emphasise that one of the three new cases was imported while the remaining two are contacts of our earlier cases. Aggressive contact tracing has since begun.
“This incident of another imported case explains why we are now deploying military personnel to man our borders while police and other security agencies maintain their hold internally.”
He further disclosed that, “We are proud to say that our strategy to prevent community dissemination is working so far. We thank all our frontline workers for this great feat.
“We urge them to keep the good work. In recognition of their hard work and sacrifice, His Excellency the Governor has approved special allowances for all the healthcare workers attending to our COVID-19 cases in Kwara State.”
