Other States are: Rivers, Oyo, Ogun, Ekiti, and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Nigeria’s Health Minister, Dr Osagie Ehanire, stated this on Thursday in Abuja at the weekly ministerial briefing organized by the Presidential Communications Team, led by Mr Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.
He said “Currently, the states that have the highest contribution to the national case load of COVID-19 are Lagos, Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Oyo, Ogun, Ekiti, and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
“These are the ones we have called the red alert states because they require extra attention to contain the COVID-19 outbreak in those places.”
Ehanire said Nigeria was concerned about the Delta variant because “it is more transmissible and dangerous’’.
