A graphic slide captured from Channels TV is making the rounds on social media, suggesting that the country now has 472 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with two cases in the State of Osun. The management of Channels TV has clarified that the slide was used in a report on Lassa Fever, and not COVID-19 as mischievously shared. The State Government of Osun hereby advises its citizens to disregard the misinformation and desist from transmitting “fake news” as the State has not recorded any case of COVID-19 – whether suspected, reported or confirmed.
