Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has tested positive for Covid19, self-isolated.

The Governor revealed this on Tuesday while speaking in Akure, the Ondo State capital. He has since embarked on self-isolation while on treatments. Presently, he is asymptomatic. 

According to the Governor, he had malaria few days ago and he was on treatment. He did not get over it and as at the time "we had our party NEC and my colleagues called on me, I spoke with one of them who felt that malaria shouldn't be treated lightly but that I should go ahead and have a test for COVID19." The result come out today June 30 and i tested positive.

I am asymptomatic. I am not feeling sick nor feeling hot in anyway but my doctors have decided I should take the normal treatment and self isolate. I believe that supervised home management will be ideal for me for now and so from now I will be isolated and go on with the supervised home management" he said.

Panic has erupted in the state after a video by Sahara Reporters emerged on the internet where the Governor is seeing sneezing repeatedly in the public amidst his colleagues while jubilating with party members.
