The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has debunked in its entirety, a tv screen image circulating of “472 confirmed cases” being attributed to COVID-19.

The centre in a tweet on Monday explained that the figures in the image being circulated are reported cases of Lassa fever in the country and not for COVID-19.

“NCDC is aware of tv screen image circulating of “472 confirmed cases” being attributed to #COVID19 NCDC is currently managing a national #Lassafever outbreak. The figures which appear are reported cases of #Lassafever as at February”.
