In line with his resolve to explore home-grown solutions towards the prevention and cure of coronavirus, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has said he will be donating his blood as sample for research.

Being a COVID-19 survivor, Makinde said the donation of his blood would help experts who are currently evaluating post-infection protection against coronavirus.

Makinde made this decision known, on Wednesday, on his verified social media handles.

“We have been advocating local solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic in Oyo State.

“So, as a COVID-19 survivor, I volunteered to donate my blood to be studied by our experts researching on the ‘Evaluation of Post Infection Protection Against SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19) in Nigeria,’” Makinde said.

After his recovery from COVID-19, Makinde had expressed conviction in capacity and intellect of Nigerians evolve local solutions to the virus, adding that the state will support such efforts.

He then said that since Nigerians always had their ways of dealing with flu, catarrh and cough, different from the Western world, the state would explore avenues to find a local cure for COVID-19.
