Breaking! Osun Shuts Covid-19 Isolation Center




Osun State has closed its 220-bed Mercyland Covid-19 isolation centre.

This was contained in a statement by the Information and Civic Orientation commissioner, Mrs. Funke Egbemode, on Wednesday.

The government however urged citizens to take personal responsibility for their safety, irrespective of security measures being relaxed across the country.

According to the statement,“At the end of the week’s edition of the State Executive Council meeting, the State Government would intensify the sensitisation of its citizens on the government and NCDC approved safety protocols, while citizens are enjoined to take their adherence to the protocols seriously.

“The government continues to worry about the level of non-compliance of its citizens to the COVID-19 safety protocols in the public space with more people behaving like COVID-19 is no longer a reality.

“Although the curve seems to be flattening in our State, it is important that we all acknowledge that the State of Osun is not an Island.

“Our land borders are opened, and that means that people move in and out of the State every day, most of whose COVID-19 status cannot be ascertained.”
