The Kogi State Government has said it was not aware of any new COVID-19 case as announced by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, on Wednesday night.
NCDC had on Wednesday recorded a new case, bringing the total number of cases in the state to three.
However, Kogi State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Saka Haruna, on Thursday said no sample was sent to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control that could warrant a third case.
Haruna in a Facebook post, said the state government was not aware of the fresh case.
“The purported New Case: We are not aware of who the patient is, where and when the Test was conducted! No sample sent from KG,” Haruna posted.
