The Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the University College Hospital,Ibadan, Professor Jesse Otegbayo has tested negative for COVID-19 coronavirus after eight days of isolation and treatment.
Otegbayo is among the eight confirmed cases in Oyo State. He had tested positive for the virus seven days ago.
However, Head of Public Relations Unit of the hospital, Toye Akinrinlola, said the last test on his blood sample has come back negative.
Akinrinlola explained that the CMD may have contracted the virus through Board meetings of the hospital held from Monday to Wednesday last week.
The week-long meetings were suspended on Thursday after some members showed symptoms of COVID-19.
