JUST IN: 13 Die Of COVID-19 In Osun In One Week

OSOGBO - Thirteen COVID-19 patients have died in Osun State within one week amid the third wave of the pandemic.

A statement by the Commissioner of Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs Funke Egbemode, on Monday night urged residents to be wary of the assumption that the State was completely rid of the COVID-19 virus.

According to her: “The state is now in the grips of the third wave of the dreaded disease, compounded by the fast spreading new variant.

“We urge all residents to take responsibility for their personal safety and the safety of their family members, continued disregard for safety protocols would only result in more fatalities.

“The commendable gains the state recorded in the fight against COVID-19 over the last one year, is gradually been obliterated by this inevitable resurgence given how our people have almost totally let down their guards.

"In just one week, we recorded 13 COVID-19 related deaths. The government is worried about this sad turn of events.

“Costly assumptions at this time could indeed be costly. Let us be deliberate about our safety, and let us submit ourselves to be tested to be sure of our status, especially when we feel ill.

“Early detection is still as important as ever because self-medication thins the survival margin.”
