Covid-19: A Case Of 127 Osun Idigenes Returnees From Cote De Voire by mrkia(m): 5:19pm On Apr 01, 2020
Osun Case

Imported Coronavirus from Cote d ivoire:
-Total number of people isolated =127
-Total number of tested so far=47
-Tested positive so far= 12

It is bad, but could have been worse! Thanks to collaborative efforts of Ogun and Osun State governments.

Those returnees are truly indigenes of Osun living in Cote de Voire. They apparently decided to come home back en-mass because of the rampaging virus.

They were intercepted by the security operatives in Ogun state. Having conclusively identified themselves to be Osun indigenes, the Ogun gov spoke to Osun gov and they both made water-tight arrangements to escort them Osun.

Osun, while waiting for them, had prepared a high school for thier isolation.

None of them was showing any symptoms when they arrived. Nonetheless, the government decided to screen them all because they are considered high risk due to thier departing country.

So far, 12 have been positive out of 47 samples analysed. I would be surprised if more positive results were announced in the coming days.

Those positive ones have been separated and are under surveillance in one hospital. They are yet to show any symptoms of coronavirus.

Imagine these numbers coming into Osun unnoticed, this could have been a disaster!

Not saying this story is not true, infact, it's believable, but are they part of the new cases? When were they tested? Different figures, different stories everyday undecided
