Please can you tell lagosians how you came about the figures, it’s has not stop increasing in lagos alone. In as much as many people died in Kano you still saying Lagos has more new cases. God will help us all.

I don’t think your data for Kano is a true reflection of events there. Do something about massive testing please. If this undetected carriers mix with the populace I bet you won’t believe what will happen next.

Kogi that shares borders with 7 states with confirmed cases is claiming that it has no case bruuuuh! We aren’t testing enough that’s why. I believe we have nothing less than 10k cases in Nigeria as of today. Many are self medicating and many are being treated privately

It’s really absurd that while FCT has 158 cases, Nasarawa has only one while Niger has two.
Considering the proximity of these two states to the FCT, it’s near impossible for these figures to accurately reflect reality.
Massive testing needed!
