Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu said it has run out of bed spaces at its Infectious Disease Hospital in Akure.
Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu stated this in a state wide broadcast on Monday.
The Governor who had tested positive to the dreaded virus also revealed that he has now tested negative to the virus.
The Governor who revealed that so far 20 persons have died due to COVID-19 complications while over 472 persons have tested positive to the infection, further assured the state that the pandemic will be overcome.
According to him, “Let me use this opportunity to passionately appeal to all our people to please take the fight against COVID-19 seriously. The menace of this deadly virus is expanding in exponential measure. It is in fact putting massive pressure on the treatment facilities of Government. I have just been briefed that between Saturday July the 4th and Sunday July the 5th a total of 62 new cases were recorded.”
“My dear people, in spite of the vicissitude of the times, I wish tell you that I am unshaken in my conviction and faith in our ability to overcome this pandermic. I urge us all to act responsibly, deepen our prayers for divine intervention and perfect healing for our state.”
Governor Akeredolu noted that the obvious implication of its current situation was that ‘prevention is the best way to reduce pressure on cure.’
He also said that he has accepted the resignation of Mr. Ifedayo Abegunde as Secretary to the State Government and announced Mr. Tayo Oluseye Oluwatuyi as his replacement.
