The Ondo State government on Tuesday rejected the figure for the COVID-19 situation in the state released by the Nigeria Centre For Disease Control (NCDC). This was contained in a statement released by the Acting Commissioner for Health, Jibayo Adeyeye, in Akure.
According to the NCDC, Ondo State has 2,506 cases of COVID-9. 2,080 people have been discharged while 55 have died from the infection.
The state currently has 371 active cases, the NCDC said.
But the statement by Adeyeye said the NCDC report created an impression that the state was now the most severely affected state in the country.
“This is far from the truth,” he said.
”The true picture is that the figure recently declared for the state is a cumulative of arrears for several days due to delay in getting results from the testing laboratories.
”The current situation report with regards to COVID-19 in the state includes 18,443 as total number of samples collected since inception, 2,491 confirmed cases, 2,395 recovery cases.
“The total number of deaths from COVID-19 is 54, case of fatality rate goes to 2.2 per cent and current test positivity rate is 20 per cent.
