The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, has tendered their unreserved apology to the Zamfara State Government for wrongly accrediting eight positive cases of Coronavirus to the state in their previous report.
The sector regrets making the mistake and apologised to the governor Bello Matawalle’s led administration of Zamfara, promising its commitment to further deliver its reports with accuracy and transparency.
Naija News understands that the NCDC had on May 18 accredited 8 new cases wrongly to Zamfara State.
However, the NCDC has apologised to the state in a tweet on its official microblogging site account on Wednesday night.
NCDC tweeted, “On the 18th of May, 8 new cases in Zamfara were erroneously announced. Therefore, as at the 20th of May 2020, Zamfara has recorded a total of 76 confirmed cases. We apologise to @Zamfara_state for this error and reiterate our commitment to accurate & transparent reporting of data.”
