Ondo state Governor, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu has tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Akeredolu made the announcement via his official Twitter account on Tuesday, June 30, 2020.
He wrote; “Today, I tested positive for #COVID19. All is well. I’m asymptomatic and have been self-isolating. Work continues. Your continued prayers over my well being are most appreciated.”
The Governor disclosed he had been treating himself for malaria until he took the advice of a fellow APC member to undergo a COVID test in order to ascertain the source of his ailment.
“My good people of Ondo State. It gives me great pleasure to address you at this moment. I had malaria two days ago and was treated. I did get over it.
“At the APC NEC meeting, one of my colleagues spoke with me. He advised that malaria should not be just treated as likely. That I should go ahead and have a test for COVID-19.
