The Osun State Government has recorded five cases of the UK variant of Covid-19, B117 strain, which was first reported in the United Kingdom.
The Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 had last week announced the discovery of the strain in Nigeria.
A statement by the State Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Funke Egbemode, said the government is concerned with the continued disregard and defiance for safety protocols in the state.
Egbemode said citizens are enjoined to scale up their personal responsibility for safety by complying with all the non-pharmaceutical protocols outlined by the government, to avoid tragic consequences.
