Coronavirus Outbreak: 28 persons quarantined in Ogun

The Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, has said 28 persons who had contacts with an Italian victim of Coronavirus in the state have been quarantined.

Abiodun disclosed this on Friday while addressing journalists on the development in his Oke-Mosan Office.

According to the governor, efforts were ongoing to identify more persons who had contacts with the 44-year-old Italian apart from the 28 quarantined so far.

He added that the Lafarge cement factory that hosted the victim of the virus had been locked down, promising all the contacts would be traced and quarantined.

Abiodun, however, said the isolation centre at the Olabisi Onabanjo Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, would be upgraded to a Biosecurity and Containment Centre, which according to him will be fourth of its kind in Nigeria.

The governor urged the residents of the state not to panic, submitting that government would do its best possible to ensure the virus is contained.
