The first case was reported on March 21 as reported by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control.

According to NCDC: “For a breakdown of cases by states; Lagos – 44, FCT – 14, Ogun – 3, Ekiti – 1, Oyo – 3, Edo – 1, Bauchi – 2, Osun -1 and Rivers -1.”

It would be recalled that on Thursday, the Oyo State chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), urged Governor Seyi Makinde led the government to consider a lockdown of activities in the state.

The NMA Chairman, Dr. Akin Sodipo, said the call became necessary to stop the spread of Coronavirus in the state and Nigeria.

Sodipo said the lockdown would curtail the movement of people thereby, containing the spread of Coronavirus in the state.
