The Osun State Government on Wednesday closed down the Mercy land 220-bed isolation centre.

This was made known in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Funke Egbemode, at the end of the week’s edition of the State Executive Council meeting.

She said that the State Government would intensify the sensitisation of its citizens on the government and NCDC approved safety protocols.

The statement read in part: “The government continues to worry about the level of non-compliance of its citizens to the COVID-19 safety protocols in the public space, with more people behaving like COVID-19 is no longer a reality.

“Although the curve seems to be flattening in our State, it is important that we all acknowledge that the State of Osun is not an Island. Our land borders are opened, and that means that people move in and out of the State every day, most of whose COVID-19  status cannot be ascertained.”
