Kogi Rejects Two COVID-19 Cases Announced By NCDC
Updated May 28, 2020A patient who is suspected of suffering from COVID-19 coronavirus undergoes testing at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital isolation centre on May 10, 2020. Audu MARTE / AFP The Kogi state government has rejected the two COVID-19 positive cases announced by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
In its daily report of new cases on Wednesday, the NCDC said Kogi had recorded its first two cases.Only Kogi state and Cross River were previously the only states not to have recorded any case of the virus.However, during his appearance onPolitics Today
on Thursday, Kogi state’s Commissioner for Information, Kingsley Fanwo, described the NCDC reporting process as fraudulent.“We are completely rejecting such declarations because they do not even conform to the protocols set by the NCDC itself.“When you look at the history of the cases they declared, the patient was admitted at the Federal Medical Centre in Lokoja for symptoms that were far from COVID-19 symptoms. But they were not attended to there and the next thing was to bring them to the National Hospital in Abuja. And within a few hours, they were tested, and under 24 hours, the man was declared COVID-19 positive.
“It is fraudulent as far we are concerned and we are rejecting them in its entirety.”Meanwhile, the NCDC had earlier maintained that due process was followed in recording the Kogi cases.At the briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja on Thursday, the Director-General of the NCDC, Chikwe Ihekweazu, said the Kogi index case was a referral from the Federal Medical Centre in Lokoja.
“There is actually no dilemma in the two cases,” he said. “They followed absolutely normal practice.“A patient that was referred from the Federal Medical Centre to the National Hospital. This is a normal referral pathway when you have a case.“The physicians in the National Hospital, I don’t have any influence over the work that they do. They suspected COVID-19 based on the clinical symptoms of the patient, asked for a test, and the test came out positive.
“The individual lives in Kogi state. And public health response is based on where you live because that’s where your contacts are.“So this is not controversial in any way. Standard practice was followed. Once the results came out, the state’s Epidemiologist was informed that he has to do contact-tracing around this patient. It is the state’s responsibility to do that contact-tracing. So we hope they do it. There is nothing actually controversial in any way about this.”
On whether the NCDC was willing to subject its test for validation, Ihekweazu said, “we are a public health organisation, everything we do is open to the Nigerian people.” Read more: Channels Television »
Na the matter we dey settle since Kogi State Government debunked the news, The Minister of Information said the symptoms is far from Covid-19, but the NCDC epidemiology said they have TWO COUNTRY ONE SYSTEM Have said it time without number, NCDC is fraudulent. Until they reveal the truth behind the actual cases we have in this country.
E Don happen It’s about time somebody like a senator or a lawyer do an independent review on the total number of reported covid19 cases in Nigeria. Some high level transparency is needed here to restore sanity and integrity in the system In an ideal world, you fall sick with an unbearable medical condition and then request test or diagnosis but not any more with NCDC(New Case Don Come). They come to a perfectly healthy person, do a test and verbally release the result. Covid419 is a ploy to promote test kit biz.

Jokers Na the matter we they settle since, and network no too they Lokoja.... Who is Fooling who.... I hail for Nigeria There is nothing to dispute here. lugardhouse Infominkogi should do contact tracing before COVID19 spreads further in the state. Brazilian president who denied COVID19 is reaping its fruit now.
Who go settle this matter? May be Oga Bello is yet to agree to their terms. They should increase their offer immediately. Lol I follow back Nigeria agn? Abeg How we go take settle this matter now 'NCDC should stop defrauding Nigeria' ~ Kogi govt. 'Sanwo Olu should account for the money spent so far on covid-19' ~Lagos state assembly(14-04-2020) Cases are increasing everyday since that day. Abeg b4 you drag me for clothe, I didn't say anything. I just quoted.
When they knew the case was not covid-19 related, y didn't the FMC Lokoja treat the patient instead of referring him to the National hospital, abuja? This desperation to ensure Kogi isn't listed will only get kogites killed soon. Naija my country 😂😂😂 Yeah it was rigged , ballot boxes were stolen and they were no elections in Ankpa , Dekina and Kabba LGAs
