Kogi Govt Rejects NCDC’S Claim, insists on Zero Status for COVID-19
Kogi State Government this evening maintained its stand that the state has zero case of COVID-19 contrary to the assertions of the National Centre for Disease Control(NCDC).
The NCDC had announced yesterday that Kogi State recorded 2 positive Cases of COVID-19.
But speaking on Politics Today on Channels Television, the State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Evangelist Kingsley Fanwo said the claim by NCDC was false.
“The declaration of the two COVID-19 Cases in Kogi State was a beautiful fraud. The alleged COVID-19 patient was an Imam who was stung by bees and was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre before moving to Abuja. The man who was allegedly tested positive showed no symptom of COVID-19″, he declared.
He insisted that the State had capacity to test and manage any case of COVID-19 but ” will not accept fictitious declaration of positive cases”
