Dr Rafiu Isamotu, the State’s Commissioner for Health, in a statement in Osogbo on Wednesday, said four patients were also discharged from the isolation band treatment centre after they tested negative to the virus.

Isamotu said the new confirmed cases were contacts of those who had previously contracted the virus in the state.

The commissioner said with the new cases recorded, the number of confirmed cases in the state had risen to 210 with 115 active cases.

Isamotu said 88 patients had successfully been treated and discharged with seven deaths recorded so far.
