He added that the decision became necessary as they’ve exceeded the containment phase and now at the active community transmission stage as they will intensify home treatment for Corona-virus patients with mild symptoms, as isolation centers are running out of bed spaces following increased cases of Corona-virus in the state

His words;

“We have exceeded the containment phase now. We are at the active community transmission stage.

“We will be concentrating on people with severe cases and isolating them while mild cases will be managed at home. Our attention is shifting to community-based isolation.”

It’s important for the public to know that they are to confirm their #COVID19 status if they are unwell.

What we mean to #flattenthecurve is that, we want to spread out the speed at which the virus is spreading in the community. #ShopTalkHealth@A_Adefarasin @jidesanwoolu pic.twitter.com/w5eT8LGAqa
