The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has apologized to the 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 but the state kicked, saying it had only confirmed two positive cases.
NCDC tweeted on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 that; “On the 18th of May, 8 new cases in Zamfara were erroneously announced.
“Therefore, as at the 20th of May 2020, Zamfara has recorded a total of 76 confirmed cases.
“We apologise to @Zamfara_state for this error and reiterate our commitment to accurate & transparent reporting of data.”
