Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

The Osun State Government has vowed to test every willing resident to ensure that the further spread of the coronavirus is curtailed.

The Special Adviser to the governor on Public Health, Dr. Siji Olamiju, disclosed on Saturday that the state presently carries out the test on an average of 100 residents daily.

Dr. Olamiju, however, sought the assistance of the National Centre for Disease Control, (NCDC) in order for the state to sustain its current testing capacity, stressing that it is a possibility because the government provides necessary kits.

“We are ready to test every willing resident. Our testing capacity has gone up. This is due to the support of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.

“But we are seeking the assistance of NCDC. We want them to complement the effort of the Osun State Government by assisting us with testing kits.

“We have tested on average over 100 people per day in the last few days. In fact, about three days ago, we tested about 120. Two days ago, it was over 100,” Olamiju concluded.
