JUST IN: NCDC Reports Error On Ekiti COVID-19 Records, Total Now 541



The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control has reported an error it made on coronavirus records on Ekiti State.

In a statement on its verified twitter handle on Sunday, the NCDC said due to an error in the verification process, it wrongly reported one new case in Ekiti, and that the confirmed case in the state was three not four.

The health agency therefore adjusted the total confirmed COVID-19 cases in the country to 541.

NCDC tweeted: “Yesterday, we erroneously reported one new case in Ekiti.

“This was wrong and was caused by an error in the verification process.

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

Ekiti State has 3 confirmed cases, NOT 4.”

NCDC further apologised to the Ekiti State government for such error.

“We apologise to the Government of Ekiti State for this error. We remain committed to improving our quality control processes, to ensure accurate and transparent reporting of cases.”
