Ogun State Government in its bid to combat Coronavirus pandemic in the state has revealed that, henceforth, it will conduct tests on anyone who visits the COVID-19 test laboratory.

The new measure was disclosed in a series of tweets on Monday evening by the state governor, Dapo Abiodun.

According to him, the state will commence treatment on every person who could avail himself or herself for COVID-19 test in its laboratories, even while awaiting their test results.

Gov Abiodun explained that the new measure was to ensure non-spread of the dreadful disease among residents in the state.

He, however, did give clarification on if such individuals will be taken into an isolation centre or not but noted that the “see and treat” method means individuals who avail themselves for will be treated, irrespective of the status of their test result.

Governor Dapo tweeted, “As part of efforts towards curbing the community spread of the Coronavirus, we are introducing a “see and treat” method in our testing centres. With this step, we will immediately commence treatment for everyone that comes for testing even before the results are out.”

Meanwhile, Governor Ben Ayade of Cross Rivers State has been commended by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control for its coronavirus free state, Naija News reports.
