Oyo state commissioner for youths and sports, Seun Fakorede has said the two subsequent COVID-19 confirmation tests conducted came back positive.
This means the virus is still within his body.
The youngest commissioner stated this in a Facebook post on Sunday morning.
“In the spirit of giving you all a honest update about my COVID-19 situation — the two subsequent confirmation tests I’ve taken came back positive, still. Yet, I remain asymptomatic, with no symptoms whatsoever. Don’t panic please — I am very well, hale and hearty. My immune system is fighting this so strongly, I believe.
“I was told by the NCDC personnels that I’m not in this alone. So while I don’t understand the operation of this virus or why the tests keep coming back positive — I’m taking every pound of strength in me to encourage everyone out there with similar cases. Don’t be dismayed, we will win.
“Quite frankly, COVID-19 is still very much with us, don’t let your guards down, this is the time to further intensify your defence against this univiting virus — Follow the COVID-19 Task Force directives.
“Again, I say, this is not a death sentence — please stay safe, protect yourself, protect those around you.
Keep me in your prayers — I wish you an amazing week ahead. Happy Sunday!”
Last month, Hon Fakorede tested positive to the ravaging coronavirus and had since gone into self isolation.
