Kogi and cross states are the only states in Nigeria that have not recorded any case of coronavirus cases in the country, a situation some people have been havind different opinion about.



Considering the location of Kogi state in the country, the state shares border with 8 other states and the federal capital and yet all the neighboring states and FCT have recorded at least 5 cases in their state.

It will be recalled that the Kogi state governor in early April said the state have an APP to test the virus and in early May the governor also said the many states that are recording huge number of cases in their state are just inflating the figure.

However, the data from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control reports that, as at May 18 stated that 35,983 tests have been carried out across the country, while 5,959 have been confirmed positive for the virus.

According to the NCDC update on the COVID-19 outbreak in the country, which was made available on its website, Kogi recorded the lowest number of tests with no confirmed case.

This was followed by Cross River State with seven COVID-19 tests conducted but no positive case.

Lagos State, which had the highest number of tests at 14,886, also topped the list of confirmed cases at 2,550.

Similarly, the Federal Capital Territory was reported to have conducted 4,688 tests and confirmed 418 cases, while Kano State recorded 2,653 tests and 825 confirmed cases.

The update showed the total number of tests in states till date, including Ogun (1,607), Oyo (1,420), Gombe (959), Edo (822), Kwara (770), Kaduna (755), Jigawa (744), Katsina (663), Borno (615) Sokoto (595), Bauchi (577), Osun (522), Ondo (385), and Delta (357).

Others were Rivers (348), Kebbi (336), Nasarawa (324), Zamfara (253), Ekiti (226), Imo (184), Ebonyi (176), Plateau (171), Enugu (145), Abia (119), Akwa Ibom (108), Adamawa (107), Niger (104), Anambra (101), Taraba (76), Bayelsa (70), Benue (59) and Yobe (50).

Presumably, the only test carried out in Kogi state will be the test done for the governor himself.
