The Kwara state government has clarified that the state did not record any 92 fresh cases of Covid-19 as it is been spread across some social media platforms.
The Chief Press Secretary to Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, Mallam Rafiu Ajakaye who gave the clarification in a telephone chat noted that the figure given by the National Center for Disease Control, NCDC is a cumulative figure of the previously reported cases of 71 and the last confirmed cases of 21 reported last night by the state government, thus a total of 92 cases recently reported, but not fresh cases as misconstrued.
While clarifying the misleading information, Ajakaye said “92 cases of Covid-19 infections reported by NCDC is a cumulative figure of the previous 71 cases and the 21 reported by KWSG last night, so KWARA DOES NOT record any fresh 92 cases of Covid-19. “
He however noted that the total number of infected patients reported by NCDC and Kwara state government remains 422.
“When you look at the total number of infected patients in the figure released by Kwara state government last night, you will find out that it tallies with the total number of figure given by NCDC also”, the CPS to Gov AbdulRazaq said.
