The Kogi State government has rejected the new data from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) that two confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in the state.
The NCDC in its data released for Wednesday, May 27, said two cases of Coronavirus have been recorded in the state that was hitherto free of the disease.
However, in a statement released this morning, the Kogi State Commissioner of Health, Saka Haruna Audu, said the state government has developed “full testing capacity” and “conducted hundreds of tests” which have come back negative. The government says they would not be party to any ”fictitious COVID-19 claims”
“Kogi State till this very moment is Covid-19 free. We have developed full testing capacity and have conducted hundreds of tests so far which have come back negative. (Text -Nation)
