GOV. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State on Monday disclosed that the state recorded 80 new positive cases of COVID-19 within one week and a total of 18 deaths so far
Akeredolu made this known in Akure during a press briefing at the Government House.
According to the governor, the state has 154 confirmed cases out of the 1,257 tested and 71 active cases while 41 patients were discharged.
“In view of this, all the directives on preventive measures remain in place as we appeal for more dedication from our people to use nose masks, observe social distancing and frequent washing of hands,” Akeredolu said.

According to him, the daily increase in cases in the state can be blamed on the non-chalant attitude of residents. (NAN)
