The death toll from the virus has climbed to 1048, while the number of discharged patients who fully recovered from the virus is now 42,627.

States with very low cases as at Thursday night were Anambra-3, Oyo-3, Edo-2, Ogun-2, Osun-2 and Cross River-1.

For the umpteenth time, the NCDC made another error by reporting additional one confirmed case in its summary and apologised to Nigerians for this mistake.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the NCDC had spotted another error in its record of the confirmed COVID-19 cases in the country.

The federal health agency said it erroneously reported eight new cases for Zamfara state on Monday, May 18. With the error rectified, Zamfara state now has a total of 76 confirmed cases Covid-19 as of Wednesday night, May 20.

"We apologise to Zamfara for this error and reiterate our commitment to accurate and transparent reporting of data" the NCDC tweeted.

Again, the agency discovered an error in its record of the confirmed COVID-19 cases in the country.

While confirming 14 new cases on Thursday evening, April 9, taking the total confirmed cases to 288, the federal health agency noted that it erroneously reported two new cases for Bauchi state on Wednesday, April 8.

The agency said it later detected that the two were repeat tests from previously confirmed cases.

"We apologise for this error and remain committed to ensuring transparent and accurate reporting of test results," the NCDC tweeted.
