The Ekiti State Government has recorded second case of COVID-19 in the state.
The Nigeria Center for Disease Control made the announcement on their official Twitter page on Wednesday.
“Twelve new cases of COVID19 have been reported in Nigeria; 9 in Osun, 2 in Edo and 1 in Ekiti State
“As at 12:30 pm 1st April there are 151 confirmed cases of #COVID19 reported in Nigeria. Nine have been discharged with two deaths,” NCDC tweeted.
This came barely 24 hours after the State government on Tuesday announced that the only coronavirus index case recorded in the state had recovered.
Commissioner for Health, Dr Mojisola Yaya-Kolade, while briefing newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, said that the index case, who had been in isolation, was discharged after he had fully recovered.
Yaya-Kolade said: “He has now tested negative. Everything is normal; we cannot continue to keep him.
“What we told him was that when he gets home, he should still self-isolate and that if he is going out, he should wear face mask.”
