The total number of cases now stand on 6401. 1734 people have been successfully discharged while 192 casualties from the pandemic have been recorded so far.
Kogi and Cross Rivers are the two only states in the country that are yet to record the presence of the ravaging virus, though there is a palpable fear the government of the two states are not doing enough to discover the virus which NCDC predicted would spread to all states of the federation.
