The recent increasing rate of COVID-19 pandemic in Kwara state has been reportedly linked to the violation of the travel ban order by Governor Abdulrazaq.

The flagrant disobedience by some travelers has made the state to threaten stricter measures on the citizens, visitors, and indigenes of the state.

Speaking in  Ilorinwith the leadership of the Hausa community, Deputy Governor and Chairman of COVID-19 Technical Committee, Mr Kayode Alabi, has vowed to punish all travel ban violators as most of the COVID-19 index cases in the state were non-residents intercepted by security personnel.

He urged the executive members of the community to inform their people to stay anywhere they are until the end of the pandemic.

The deputy governor noted that “the virus does not show on faces and the moment a carrier mingles with others, it increases community spreading”.

However , Naija News recalls that ten new cases of COVID-19 pandemic was confirmed in ilorin yesterday.

This development brings the total of confirmed cases in the state to 44, including nine discharged patients as well as one death.
