Ondo state has recorded 30 cases of COVID-19 in one week.
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu who disclosed this at the weekly press briefing, said the figure is frightening and embarrassing.
Out of this figure, 11 persons were infected in Okitipupa, local government area of the the state.
Seven of the cases are health workers, serving in a private clinic where one of the earlier cases reported for treatment.
Akeredolu added that Ondo state now has a total of 73 confirmed cases spread across 11 councils.
He said, “our state recorded an unprecedented 30 new cases of Corona virus infection in the last one week. It is an occurrence which should not have happened if the necessary precautions were respected and obeyed.
“The indicators, the trends and patterns seen so far, seem to suggest that the difficult days are fast approaching.
“The point must be made again that until we take charge of the fight to stop the spread, the pandemic will continue to attack our daily lives and limit the freedom and prosperity which we are entitled to as civilised people.
‘The cases of the 11 individuals infected in Okitipupa is perhaps worthy of mention. Of particular note here is the fact that seven of the cases are health workers, serving in a private clinic where one of the earlier cases reported for treatment, before being referred to UNIMEDTH in Ondo”.
