The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has reported that there is a new case of coronavirus in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.
The NCDC via Twitter revealed that the case was confirmed on Sunday, March 22, bringing the number of cases to 27.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Adejare Adeboye, had opened up on a revelation given to him by God concerning the spread of coronavirus.
Adeboye on Sunday, March 22, said that God had told him earlier in 2020 that the outbreak of the virus will bring about a compulsory holiday all over the world.
The renowned cleric revealed: “God said there will be a compulsory holiday. The closest we had like that was during 9-11.”
The RCCG head pastor said that the pandemic will become history only when God succeeds in making the world understand that he is sovereign over all human affairs.
In another post, Legit.ng reported that since the confirmation of the index case of the novel coronavirus in Lagos, the Nigerian government has been telling the citizens not to panic, given assurance that everything is under control.
However, as the number of Covid-19 cases in the country increased, Nigerians put pressure on the federal government to restrict movements into the country.
The Nigerian government responded by placing a travel ban on countries with over 1,000 confirmed Covid-19 cases, including the United States and the United Kingdom.
Nevertheless, Nigerians appeared to be demanding more now as the Federal Ministry of Health confirmed 10 new cases in the noon of Saturday, March 21, bring the total confirmed cases in the country to 22.
According to the health minister, Dr Osagie Ehanire, Lagos has 16 cases, FCT 3, Ekiti 1 and Ogun 2. Two of the confirmed cases had been discharged after undergoing treatment and testing negative for the virus.
