We apologise on this error: NCDC begs Nigerians for another mistake on coronavirus update

Federal government explains reason coronavirus lockdown may be extended again

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has spotted another error in its record of the confirmed COVID-19 cases in the country.

While confirming 14 new cases on Thursday evening, April 9, taking the total confirmed cases to 288, the federal health agency noted that it erroneously reported two new cases for Bauchi state on Wednesday, April 8.

The agency said it later detected that the two cases were repeat tests from previously confirmed cases.

“Yesterday (Wednesday, April 8), we erroneously reported 2 new cases in Bauchi. Following further review, we can confirm that these were repeat tests for previously confirmed cases.
