COVID-19: NCDC Corrects Error, Says No New Case In Ekiti



Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has corrected its earlier report which stated that there was a new Coronavirus case in Ekiti state.

It would be recalled that the center at 10:20 pm on Saturday night reported that there were forty-nine new cases across the country, one of which was reportedly confirmed in Ekiti.

NCDC has now come out to refute its Saturday report saying;

Yesterday, we erroneously reported one new case in Ekiti. This was wrong and was caused by an error in the verification process.

Therefore, as of April 18, 2020, there are 541 confirmed cases, 166 discharged and 19 deaths.

Ekiti state has 3 confirmed cases, NOT 4

With the correction, there are now 3 Coronavirus cases in Ekiti, not 4 as earlier reported.
