The state Deputy Governor and chairman of the COVID-19 committee, Mr. Kayode Alabi, had on Friday disclosed that three additional cases were recorded in the state making a total of 14 confirmed cases with two discharged patients.
“All our cases are stable and in the best of spirits. We want to emphasize that one of the three new cases was imported, while the remaining two are contacts of our earlier cases. Aggressive contact tracing had since begun,”
