Two COVID-19 patients have absconded from an isolation centre in Oyo.
Confirming the incident on Twitter on Wednesday, the state’s Governor Seyi Makinde while debunking reports that four patients fled the isolation centre said only two people absconded.
“Of the 33 active cases being managed by the state, two have absconded, possibly to their permanent places of residence. This brings the number of active cases in Oyo State to 31.
“Ten cases are self-isolating, while 21 cases are being managed in the isolation centres in Oyo State; one at the University College Hospital, Ibadan and 20 in Olodo. Nineteen of these 20 cases at Olodo are asymptomatic and the last person has anosmia (loss of smell),” Makinde explained.
