Oyo State has recorded 28 new confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to the latest figures released by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on Thursday night.
The 28 cases in the state were among the 339 figures recorded in 18 states on Thursday. The recent daily increase in the number of people who tested positive to COVID-19 has created fear among residents, though majority of them still go out without the use of face masks against the directive of the government.
According to the state government this nonchalant attitude of some of the residents had prompted the state COVID-19 Task Force to intensify sensitization programme in Oke-Ogun area of the state on Thursday, where it threatened to sanction erring members of the public that fail to wear face mask.
