The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) announced on Wednesday night that two cases of coronavirus were recorded in Kogi State, bringing the total number of infection in the country to 8,733.

This was made known in a Twitter post by the NCDC, marking the first time that positive results were confirmed for Kogi since the outbreak of the virus in Nigeria about three months ago.

The breakdown of the figure on state-by-state basis by the NCDC are: Lagos (256), Katsina (23), Edo (22), Rivers (14), Kano (13), Adamawa (11), Akwa Ibom (11), Kaduna (7), Kwara (6), Nasarawa (6) and Gombe (2).

Others are – Plateau (2), Abia (2), Delta (2), Benue (2), Niger (2), Kogi (2), Oyo (2), Imo (1), Borno (1), Ogun (1) and Anambra (1).

Among the 8733 cases, 2501 persons have been discharged and 254 deaths recorded.

This is coming one week after Kogi doctors have accused Governor Yahaya Bello of frustrating their efforts to test patients, who have COVID-19 symptoms in the state.
