Finally, Osun Closes Isolation Centre

Isolation Centre

Osun government has shut down the Isolation Centre in the state. 


CityNews Nigeria reports that the Osun State Government on Wednesday closed a 220-bed isolation centre to manage COVID-19 patients.


The state government urged the citizens to take personal responsibility for their safety against the COVID-19 pandemic, irrespective of security measures being relaxed across the country.


The statement of the Mercyland Isolation Centre closure was conveyed by Mrs. Funke Egbemode the Information and Civic Orientation Commissioner.

At the end of the week’s edition of the State Executive Council meeting, she said the state government would intensify the sensitisation of its citizens on the government and NCDC approved safety protocols, enjoining the citizens to take their adherence to the protocols seriously.


“The government continues to worry about the level of non-compliance of its citizens to the COVID-19 safety protocols in the public space, with more people behaving like COVID-19 is no longer a reality.

“Although the curve seems to be flattening in our state, it is important that we all acknowledge that the Osun State is not an island. Our land borders are opened and that means that people move in and out of the state every day, most of whose COVID-19 status cannot be ascertained,” the commissioner said.
