Odunuga explained: ''There are Eighty-Five (85) Wards in the eight Local Government Areas that make up Delta-Central. This translates to Seventeen Thousand (17,000) households in the Senatorial Zone.''

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Chikwe Ihekweazu, the director-general of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), had disclosed that 90% of COVID-19 patients recover without any intervention.

Ihekweazu made this known at the media briefing of the presidential task force on COVID-19 on Wednesday, April 8.

Legit.ng gathered that the NCDC boss was reacting to a question on how the governor of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde, recovered from the virus in less than one week.

He said what a COVID-19 patient usually requires is support for the body to recover by itself.

He said: “We should remember that 90 per cent of these patients recover without any intervention. So, if you take something and say you recovered and that something is why you recovered, it doesn’t quite add up."

The NCDC boss further explained that very few viruses have a cure. He said COVID-19 patients are given oxygen at the hospital which is not a treatment but administered to keep the patients alive for long enough to recover by themselves.

As at Wednesday evening, the NCDC confirmed 22 new cases indicating that 15 of the cases are in Lagos, four in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), two in Bauchi and one in Edo.
