Makinde flags off drive-through/walk-through testing

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, yesterday, flagged off Drive-Through/Walk-Through testing for COVID-19 for mass testing in order to determine whether stiffer measures will be introduced to upgrade the partial lockdown to a total lockdown.

The state had imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew, banned religious gatherings and interstates transportation, closed all schools, night clubs and markets for a period of time, except fruit and food markets, among other measures.

The flag off ceremony took place at Lekan Salami Sports Complex, Adamasingba, Ibadan. The Drive-Through/Walk-Through testing centre will be at the open space in the complex when the stadium is accessed from the gate opposite Ibadan Recreation Club.

Makinde said: “Before the index case was recorded on March 21, we had started putting things in place to ensure we will be able to prevent, contain, and control the spread of COVID-19 in Oyo State.”
