The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has confirmed his coronavirus positive status and has embarked on self-isolation to prevent the spread of viral infection among his immediate family and personal aides.
He explained that his new status came after he received confirmation of positive results for the deadly respiratory disease.
The Governor, through a post on his social media page on Tuesday, clarified that he got confirmation of a positive result earlier in the day and that he is asymptomatic.
