Earlier this week, Akin Abayomi, commissioner for health, had said the state would embark on active case search since there was now evidence of community-based transmission.
“We’re hoping to run at least two to three thousand tests in the coming week as we embark on the active case search in the community; of course, as we test more we’re likely to see more positivity,” he had said.
“We already know that the virus is circulating in the community, and the more we look for it, the more we will find but that is in keeping with our strategy.”
