NCDC Corrects Error On Covid-19, Total Cases 541

Ekiti State Case was an error
The news making headline yesterday Saturday 18th April 2020 was that Ekiti State had 4 cases of Corona Virus, but the Nigerian Center for Disease Control has come out to clear the air over what it called an erroneous report.

According to NCDC, this error was caused due to a mistake in the verification process. Nigeria has now a total number of 541 cases with 166 discharged and 19 deaths so far.

The Agency said in a tweet in the early hours of Sunday 19th April, Ekiti has 3 cases, not 4.

We erroneously reported a new case yesterday due to an error in the verification process, Ekiti has 3 cases Not 4. We have 541 cases in total with 166 discharged and 19 deaths
