COVID-19: UCH Ibadan Chief Medical Director, Professor Otegbayo Jesse Tests Positive


Here's what he wrote on twitter:

On Monday 23rd March, we commenced a 12man quarterly board meeting which was meant to last 5 days in the hospital, we observed social distancing and other precautionary measures for covid-19 as much as possible.

However, on Wednesday morning, one of us presented with what appeared to be symptoms of covid-19, his samples were immediately taken for test and the meeting called off.
  
His results returned positive on Friday morning and every participant (including me) immediately went into self-isolation while our samples were also taken for test. Unfortunately, my result returned positive on Saturday afternoon & I remain in isolation as I am not symptomatic.

All staff who have been in contact with me and other participants during this period have been advised to immediately proceed on self-isolation pending the time they get tested.

Covid-19 is spreading faster than we think and I enjoin everyone to take precautions. If one person has it, then a gathering of two becomes dangerous. Stay at home, avoid unnecessary outing and stay safe.
