“The COVID-19 confirmation test for one suspected case came back positive.

“The patient died at the University College Hospital, Ibadan, before his result came out today- Wednesday; contact tracing has already commenced.

“As reported earlier, one confirmed case was transferred to Lagos, so, there are currently five active cases in Oyo State,” Makinde tweeted.

Ten persons were also discharged after testing negative twice following their first test that came out positive for COVID-19 while there were now five active cases.

He implored people to continue to maintain social distancing, saying gatherings remained limited to a maximum of 10 persons.
