COVID-19 patient who rejected isolation caught trading at “Oja Oba” market

A COVID-19 patient who refused to receive treatment after testing positive for the disease has been arrested at “Oja Oba” market in Akure, capital of Ondo state.

According to Wahab Adegbenro, commissioner for health, the patient, a female, tested positive for the virus in Imo state but escaped to Ondo.

Adegbenro said after her escape, both Imo and Ondo governments launched a manhunt and she was eventually found.

The commissioner said she was caught selling second hand wares inside the market.

He, however, lamented over community transmission and appealed to residents to cooperate with the government by observing the safety protocols listed by regulatory agencies in order to contain the spread of the virus.
