Osun State Government said it has found the only person who reportedly absconded from the Isolation centre in Ejigbo.
The State Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs Funke Egbemode, who made this disclosure in a statement made available to journalists in Osogbo on Saturday afternoon said the woman has been returned to the isolation centre.
Egbemode said that the State government was still in the process of tracing individuals she might have come in contact with.
The Commissioner who said that security within and around the Isolation centre has been beefed up assured the people of the State that the government would continue to enhance measures to prevent further spread of COVID-19 in the State.
There had been an unofficial statement that six persons who tested positive escaped from isolation centre at Gedu in Ejigbo and that the state government has launched manhunt for the missed persons.
But the State Government debunked the report saying that only one Covid-19 patient was missing from an isolation centre.
