With them, Nigeria has 6677 cases of COVID-19 with 200 deaths and 1840 discharged.

“On the 18th of May, 8 new cases in Zamfara were erroneously announced. Therefore, as at the 20th of May 2020, Zamfara has recorded a total of 76 confirmed cases” NCDC added.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, on Tuesday admonished Nigerians to prepare for the worst, even as the Federal Government assiduously work to curtail the spread of the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Similarly, the Director-General of the NCDC, Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, also said, “We are not doing community testing everywhere. In certain states like Lagos, Kano, and even in the FCT, we are taking the test a lot closer to the community because of the intensity of transmission in those states.”
