Seyi Makinde, on Friday declared that 27 out of the 28 cases recorded in the state on Thursday are from the same Ibadan-based multinational company, iSON Xperiences. This brings the total cases in the company to 105.

The Governor via his official Facebook page, posted:

“The COVID-19 confirmation tests for twenty-eight suspected cases came back POSITIVE. Twenty-seven are from iSON Xperiences and the last case is from Akinyele Local Government Area. So, the total number of confirmed cases in Oyo State is 190.

Let me reassure you, as Head of the Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force, that we are doing everything in our power to contain the spread of this disease, given the recent increase in numbers.

The upside is that majority of the COVID-19 cases in Oyo State have relatively mild or no symptoms. This means that with the proper management of cases that we have put in place, they will recover without any complications.

The downside is that when people are asymptomatic, they can easily spread the virus unknowingly. This is why we all must play our roles by adhering to guidelines on frequent hand washing with soap and water, physical distancing and the use of face mask in public places.

We will continue to deploy all resources at our disposal to ensure that the virus is contained in Oyo State. Together, we can fight this pandemic”

The update given by the Governor affirmed the earlier report by the Pacesetter News that majority of the new cases are from the same company, iSON Xperiences. Oyo State Total confirmed cases as at Thursday 21, 2020 is now 190.
