Oyo state commissioner for youths and sports, Seun Fakorede has said the two subsequent confirmation tests conducted came back positive, oyogist.com reports.
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.
