“One new state, Zamfara, has reported a confirmed case in the last 24 hours.

“Till date, 1095 cases have been confirmed, 208 cases have been discharged and thirty-two deaths have been recorded in 27 states and the Federal Capital Territory.

Among those discharged were three foreigners – two Indians and one Filipino, according to the governor.

“Even with the number of cases rising, we are happy to celebrate our success stories because they show that a positive #COVID19 case isn’t necessarily a case of doom and gloom,” the governor tweeted.
