COVID-19: Ondo closes borders, declares three-day fast


The Ondo State Government has ordered the closure of its borders with the neig­hbouring states of Ekiti,  Osun, Ko­gi, Edo and Ogun states to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease in the state.



The state also declared three days fasting and prayer to end the scourge.



This was contained in a statement by the state Commissioner for Information, Mr Donald Ojogo, on Wednesday.



This statement read in part, “This order prohibits inter-state travels into the state and takes effect from 6pm on Thursday April 2, 2020. Secu­rity operatives as well as monitoring te­ams have been put on the alert to enforce this order as part of measures already taken to stem COVID­-19 incursion into Ondo State.



“As a way of thanking God and seeking His face for this immea­surable grace and co­ntinuous favour, the gov­ernment hereby decla­res a three-day period of fasting and prayer commencing from Th­ursday, April 2, to Satur­day,  April 4,  for Ondo State and the co­untry at large.”
