NEWSCOVID-19: Ogun Confirms 62 – Years Old Man As Fresh Case, Identifies 32 ContactsPublished 9 mins ago on March 24, 2020By FEMI OYEWESO (ABEOKUTA

Ogun state government late Tuesday afternoon, confirmed that a 62-years old man, who returned from United Kingdom (UK) has been identified as one fresh case of COVID-19 virus in the state.

The state Commissioner for Health, Dr. tomi Coker, who made the disclosure while briefing journalists late yesterday afternoon in Abeokuta, the state capital explained that the U.K returnee and Sagamu resident arrived Nigeria from the United Kingdom (UK) last week Tuesday 17th of March was tested positive to the dreaded disease.

Coker explained that the UK returnee “has been very responsible by isolating himself” since he arrived Nigeria”, while a total number of 32 contacts has been identified with the new COVIC-19 victim in Ogun.

According to Coker, the 32 contacts included 28 healthcare givers and four (04) members of his family when the U.K. returnee presented himself with history of dry cough and was tested positive to the virus.



“Today, we have a newly confirmed case of COVID-19 in Ogun state. Our priority at the moment is to provide care for the gentleman. He’s been transferred to our isolation centre which is located at Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH), Sagamu.

The Commissioner further explained that the state has been able to establish contacts with all of them, thereby, making “our job quite easy in tracing his contacts”.

Coker further disclosed that Ogun state has begin mass production of hand sanitizers which would be distribute to over five (05) million citizens and residents of the state free of charge.



“But I cannot tell you at this point in time when that one would come up, but I must say the most effective way of preventing COVID-19 is still hand washing with soap and water for 40 to 60 seconds. That’s more effective even than the sanitizers. So, people should wash their hands frequently”.

We are now suffering from the mistakes of our leaders who failed to shut down airports or quarantine returnees/visitors.

I just wish this virus can help us sanitize our political system. All those holding this country to Ransome.... undecided

How difficult is it for people to stay at home?

As at February 23rd, Italy had 5 confirmed virus cases and zero death.

The Italian government issued a stay at home order, people neglected it.

30 days later, Italy has over 60,000 confirmed cases and over 6,000 deaths.

There's always a price to pay for disobedience...Nigerians should learn from this and over simple rules.

How many people have been tested, the only people that has access to the test are returnees and politician. We are sitting on a time bomb in this country na only mercy of God fit save us.

Who can allow his hotel to be use as a quarantine center or which church pastor will allow his church be use? We are not thinking yet we are just joking.

The rich import the virus for the poor to suffer. This shit_ never ends.

Why are they trooping back with this disease? They call Nigeria a shithole but when shit_ hits the fan they are all trooping back to the same shithole they abandoned, carrying sickness and pestilence with them.

A country does not have the legal rights to shut its borders against it's own citizens.

It's called the RIGHT OF RETURN.

Make we no dey talk ignorant talks.

Nigeria is under playing this, the returnee has been in contact with his family member, they should test them all, let them self isolate for the time being, they shouldn’t play politics with everything.

Please stay where you are for now. Get tested before going to the village to avoid you transporting the virus to the Village.

Even a Private Citizen acted responsibly by self isolating right from the moment of return and submitting himself for quarantine, but such public figures in Abuja as Abba Kyari acted recklessly, thinking there is some sort of special immunity for them

The Infected Contacts from the Aso Rock Case may be over a hundred
