The Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) has publicly corrected its earlier announcement of the total number of Coronavirus cases in Nigeria.

Recall that on Saturday night, the agency announced that Nigeria recorded 49 new cases of COVID-19, raising the figure of total infections to 542.

The NCDC has now made a correction and it disclosed that a new case was mistakenly reported in Ekiti. The error was blamed on the verification process.

A new tweet shared by the health agency, reads;

Yesterday, we erroneously reported one new case in Ekiti. This was wrong and was caused by an error in the verification process.

Therefore, as at April 18 2020, there are 541 confirmed cases, 166 discharged and 19 deaths.

Ekiti state has 3 confirmed cases, NOT 4
