Makinde, who is the chairman of the task force, in a tweet noted that the majority of the COVID-19 cases in the state had relatively mild or no symptoms.

“This means that with the proper management of cases that we have put in place, they will recover without any complications.

“When people are asymptomatic, they can easily spread the virus unknowingly.

“This is why we must all play our roles by adhering to guidelines on frequent hand washing with soap and water, physical distancing, and the use of face mask in public places.

“We will continue to deploy all resources at our disposal to ensure that the virus is contained in Oyo State. Together, we can fight this pandemic,” he said.
