No second wave of COVID-19 in Oyo – Makinde
Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has said that the COVID-19 data available in the state was not indicating a second wave but a continuation of the first outbreak of the pandemic.
Makinde disclosed this at a press conference in Ibadan yesterday.
He said though the curve since the outbreak of the pandemic was never flattened, his government was exploring other means of getting the vaccine for the people.
He said the federal government had allocated 1,800 vaccines to the state, out of about 100,000 vaccines procured for the country.
He, however, said that the number of vaccines allocated to the state was grossly inadequate.
Makinde said the state recorded 696 COVID-19 positive cases out of 13,000 tests from December 2020 to date.
He stated that 20,000 COVID-19 tests were conducted between March and December 2020 with 3,000 results confirmed positive.
“I have always said that all our responses to COVID-19 in Oyo state will be guided by data, science and logic. So, as far as Oyo state is concerned; the data we have is not pointing to the second wave as the curve never flattened.
