Kwara State has recorded three additional cases of COVID-19, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 14 in the state.
The Deputy Governor and Chairman COVID-19 Committee in the state, Mr Kayode Alabi, said this on Friday while briefing newsmen in Ilorin.
Alabi said following the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic in the state a few weeks ago, movement restrictions were imposed in order to curtail the spread of the virus.
“Kwara has recorded three new cases of COVID-19 and that takes us to 14 confirmed cases while 12 are active as we had earlier discharged two.
“All our cases are stable and in the best spirits.
“We want to emphasise that one of the three new cases was imported while the remaining two are contacts of our earlier cases, aggressive contact tracing has since begun
“This incident of another imported case explains why we are now deploying military personnel to man our borders while police and other security agencies maintain their hold internally,” the Deputy Governor said.
