COVID-19 pandemic, Osun State, Nigeria


The COVID-19 Pandemic which started in China and became a global threat with high morbidity and mortality was a shock to the world, especially the developing countries with poor health facilities. Nigeria was not exempted as the pandemic ravaged the world. Osun state had its own share but with adequate preparation and effective management of the pandemic by a team of health workers across the various specialties and support from other stakeholders like the security agencies, the press and various donors at different levels, the pandemic was well managed in the State of Osun. Facilities were put in place and mortality among confirmed cases was about 2.2%. In spite of the initial global reluctance to take the COVID-19 vaccines, Osun State is the third most COVID-19 vaccinated in Nigeria.
