    Delta variant of COVID-19 discovered in Oyo

    The Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force has announced the discovery of the deadly Delta variant of coronavirus in the State.

    This was contained in a press statement by Mr. Taiwo Adisa, Chief Press Secretary to Governor ‘Seyi Makinde, titled, ‘ Oyo COVID-19 Task Force uncovers delta variant in State …warns residents to take extra precautions’, on Sunday.

    The statement quoted the State Incident Manager and coordinator of the Energency Operations Centre, Dr. Olabode Ladipo, as urging residents to consistently apply all advisories earlier released by the Task Force.

    “This strain has been associated with high transmission, increase the severity of infection and outcomes.

    “As such, this is to warn that the virus is still very much within the society,” the statement read in part.

    It also warned residents of the State to continue to comply with all advisories aimed at curtailing the spread of COVID-19.

    The statement also asked all inbound travellers to always isolate for seven days and submit themselves for tests.

    It added, “The ‘Own Your Action’ initiative of the State Government should be seriously considered by adhering to the guidelines of wearing nose and mouth masks in public gatherings, washing of hands with soap and water and use of hand sanitisers, among others.

    “The Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force hereby appeals to the good people of Oyo State to comply with these and other advisories as they apply to individuals and organisations.

    “It would be appreciated if all in-bound travelers from overseas maintain the mandatory seven-day isolation and subsequent testing before mingling with the populace.

    “In addition, residents are enjoined to seek medical care and avail the opportunity of free testing whenever there’s any feeling of unwellness.

    “Vigilance on the parts of both the Government and the people will surely go a long way in stemming the transmission of this disease within the State.”
