NCDC Lied About Kogi COVID-19 Index Cases – State Govt


The Kogi State Government says the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), lied when it announced on Wednesday night that the state has recorded two index cases of COVID-19.

The State commissioner for health, Dr. Saka Haruna Audu, rejected the results in a press statement, describing the NCDC claim as a fallacy.

Audu said, “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 returned negative.

“We have also continued to insist that we will not be a party to any fictitious COVID-19 claims which is why we do not recognise any COVID-19 test conducted by any Kogite outside the boundaries of the State except those initiated by us.

“Any attempt to force us to announce a case of COVID-19 will be vehemently rejected.”

The NCDC had on Wednesday confirmed that two index cases were recorded in Kogi, bringing the total confirmed COVID-19 cases in the country to 8,733.
