Kogi state Government has rejected two new cases of COVID-19 reported in the state on Wednesday by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
In a statement on Thursday morning by the state Commissioner of Health, Saka Haruna Audu, the Government maintained that the state is Coronavirus free.
“Kogi State till this very moment is Covid-19 free. We have developed full testing capacity and have conducted hundreds of tests so far which have come back negative.
“We have also continued to insist that we will not be a party to any fictitious COVID-19 claims which is why we do not recognise any COVID-19 test conducted by any Kogite outside the boundaries of the State except those initiated by us” the statement said.
