On 3rd of April 2020, we reported 26 new cases of #COVID19 in Nigeria. An error has been discovered in this report as follows:


There were 25 new cases of #COVID19 in Nigeria. The 26th case was a repeat result of a previously confirmed case and NOT a new case.


Of the 25 new cases reported, 1 case was inadvertently reported from Osun state. This case was from OYO State.


The correct breakdown is as follows:
Lagos- 11
Osun- 6
FCT- 3
Edo- 3
Ondo- 1
Oyo- 1


As at 10:30 pm 3rd April, there are 209 confirmed cases, 25 discharged and 4 deaths.


For a breakdown of cases by states, see below.


Lagos- 109
FCT- 41
Osun- 20
Oyo- 9
Akwa Ibom- 5
Ogun- 4
Edo- 7
Kaduna- 4
Bauchi- 3
Enugu- 2
Ekiti- 2
Rivers-1
Benue- 1
Ondo- 1


We regret the error in our announcement of new #COVID19 cases in Nigeria yesterday.


The NCDC remains committed to ensuring transparency and accurate reporting of infectious disease cases in Nigeria
