The new Delta variant of the novel Coronavirus, COVID-19, has killed two persons in Oyo State.
This is as one person is also isolated and receiving medical attention at one of the state isolation facilities while contact tracing has started.
The state Incident Manager and Coordinator of the Emergency Operations Centre, Dr. Olabode Ladipo, yesterday confirmed the development.
Oladipo said: “Contact tracing is ongoing. Two of the cases are deceased but contact tracing is ongoing.
“As it is, one of contact is currently in isolation in the state facility but let me assure you that every form of effort is being proved to ensure that all the contact of everyone that we have received so far in the last two, three weeks are followed up and anyone of them that is positive, we will ensure that isolation is given.”
