Oyo Gov Catches Coronavirus As Bishop Dies Of The Virus After Conducting Service

Gov Makinde of Oyo

Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has confirmed that a coronavirus test carried out on him had turned out to be positive. This is even as a 71 year old Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) bishop, the head of Valjevo eparchy, Milutin Knezevic, was confirmed dead of the virus a few hours after conducting service.

Governor Makinde, in a tweet today, March 30, said that he would henceforth self isolate until his condition becomes stable.
And the church in Serbian said today, March 30 said: “Bishop Milutin was infected by the coronavirus while serving as a shepherd in his eparchy and among his people.
The infections and the death of 71-year-old Knezevic follow public outrage over practices, including the kissing of shrines and even using a single spoon in the communion, which had been banned under emergency regulations but which some clergymen had not foregone.
After Serbia declared a state of emergency on March 15, several videos emerged of people taking communion from a single spoon and goblet.
“It is senseless and extremely malicious of all those who neither go to church nor take communion to expect the church to deprive its faithful of what is the most important to them,” the SPC said.
