Dr. Saka also stated that the forcing of the state to admit having a Covid-19 case would not work and will continously be rejected, in his words;

“We have also continued to insist that we will not be a party to any fictitious COVID-19 claims which is why we do not recognise any COVID-19 test conducted by any Kogite outside the boundaries of the State except those initiated by us. Any attempt to force us to announce a case of COVID-19 will be vehemently rejected”.

Meanwhile the number of confirmed Coronavirus cases in Nigeria is heading to 9,000 and may get to 10,000 in the coming week.
