Osun State Commissioner for Health, Dr Rafiu Isamotu disclosed in a statement on Tuesday, that Mr Wole Oyebamiji, the Secretary to Osun Government (SSG) has tested positive to COVID-19.
In a statement he also revealed that 10 other staff working with him have also tested positive to the virus.
However, he revealed that they are all in stable condition and are receiving adequate medical care.
The commissioner noted that one of the reasons for the sudden rise in virus in state was largely due to the nonchalant attitude of residents towards the precautionary measures against the spread of the virus.
He said government might be forced to impose another lockdown, if residents continue to disregard the laid down precautionary measures against the spread of the virus.
This announcement brings the total number of confirmed covid-19 cases in Osun state to 127.
