Six persons with confirmed infection of coronavirus have reportedly escaped from isolation center in Osun.
According to Tribune Online, the coronavirus patients escaped from the center at Ejigbo local government area of Osun
The six persons belong to a cluster of COVID-19 cases who returned to their hometown, Ejigbo, from Ivory Coast last week and were quarantined by the state government.
Osun State government was, however, reported by Tribune to have launched a manhunt for the six persons.
But a top medical official who spoke to PMNews via Osun Emergency Line said they are not aware of such development.
She said the only information on the desk was that the Ivory Coast returnees who tested negative had been discharged.
She added that the condition of the isolation center is conducive and isolated persons have no reason to abscond.
When the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Ismail Omipidan was contacted on phone, his line was not reachable at the time of filing this report.
