The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has ordered a dusk-to-dawn curfew in the state after two new confirmed cases were confirmed and 84 new suspected infections discovered.
Makinde revealed this on his Twitter page on Saturday.
This is coming a few hours after the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control announced that Oyo had recorded three cases of COVID-19.
The governor also banned all inter-state transportation, shut down markets and restricted gatherings to not more than 10 persons.
“Testing capacity is limited. We have improved this by setting up two diagnostic centres in the state in collaboration with the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan. So, we will be able to test more people once the NCDC certifies the facility.” The Governor said.
The Governor said the index case remains stable and is still under observation in the isolation unit at Agbami Chest Centre, Jericho.
The number of confirmed cases in Oyo State is officially three.
