The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, has apologized to Zamfara State Government for wrongly accrediting eight positive cases of coronavirus to the State on Tuesday.

NCDC on Tuesday confirmed that Zamfara State recorded 10 cases.

However, the Zamfara State COVID-19 Taskforce countered the numbers, adding that only two cases of coronavirus were confirmed in the State.

The Chairman of the Zamfara State committee on COVID-19, who also doubles as the speaker of the state’s House of Assembly, Nasiru Muazu, had called on NCDC to properly investigate, apologize to the State and correct the error immediately to build the confidence of citizens.
