Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has explained how he contracted Coronavirus.
On Tuesday, the governor confirmed on his verified twitter account that he contracted the virus and had gone on self-isolation.
He said that a few days ago he showed symptoms of malaria and had it treated, adding that he was later advised to take the malaria more seriously by undergoing further tests.
He said, “As at the time we had our party National Executive Council meeting, my colleagues called on me and I spoke with one of them who felt that malaria should not be treated lightly and I should go ahead and have a test of COVID-19.
“The result came out today 30th June, 2020 and I tested positive but asymptomatic. I’m not feeling sick nor feeling hot in any way.
“Let me assure our people that as you can see me, there are many of us that don’t have the symptoms that are there and you cannot see it.
“This time, we will conduct another test and we will know the result. Let me assure our people that the work is going on,” he said and advised the people of the state to avoid any physical gathering and take their health more seriously.
