The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has contracted the novel Coronavirus also known as COVID-19. Akeredolu disclosed this on his verified Facebook and Twitter accounts on Tuesday.
The governor said he was already in self-isolation as required by the case management guidelines of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control for someone that is not showing symptoms.
He said, “Earlier today, I got confirmation of a positive result for COVID-19. I am asymptomatic and not displaying any symptoms.
“I am currently self-isolating and supervised home management will be administered by the wonderful team at our Infectious Disease Hospital. I ask that we all stay safe and be well.”
Akeredolu joins a growing list of top public officials, who have tested positive for the virus. They include late Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna, Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchia and Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo.
