The Ivory Coast returnee infected with covid-19 that escaped from the isolation centre in Osun has been captured and returned to the facility in Ejigbo.
The patient absconded from the facility earlier today and caused apprehension of causing community spread of the virus among the residents.
The State Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs Funke Egbemode confirmed that the woman has been returned to the isolation centre.
She said that the state government was still in the process of tracing individuals she might have come in contact with.
The Commissioner also noted that security within and around the centre has been beefed up.
Egbemode assured that the government would continue to enhance measures to prevent further spread of COVID-19 in the State.
