The Zamfara Government refute to statements made by the Nigeria Center for Disease Control that ten new COVID-19 cases were recorded in Zamfara state on Monday May 19.
However, The state Commissioner of Health NAN, Alhaji Yahaya Kanoma, in an interview asked the agency to rectify the error and also tender an apology.
His statement reads;
“We were shocked and bewildered by this latest figure from the NCDC which said 10 new cases were confirmed when we know it was only two.
Our records have shown that when results from the center returned, we had a total of 76 cases made up of 45 discharged persons, 26 in isolation and five dead, so we didn’t know where NCDC got the additional eight.
We approached the center which could not give a convincing explanation, and so we demanded a written apology which they promised to send as well as withdraw the media publicity that we had 10 new cases,” the commissioner said
