The Osun government said on Saturday the COVID-19 patient who reportedly absconded from the Isolation Centre in Ejigbo in the early hours of Saturday has been found.

The state’s Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Funke Egbemode, who disclosed this in a statement in Osogbo, said the unnamed female patient had been returned back to the isolation centre.

Egbemode said the state government was still in the process of tracing individuals the patient might have come in contact with.

The commissioner added that security within and around the isolation centre had been beefed up.
