He said that the government has written formally to NCDC to correct the mistake they jointly made.

“We have been having three cases in Bauchi, later NCDC added three, that made it six. We didn’t accept the three cases because there were discrepancies in the result, though we have had underground communication with them,” Aliyu Maigoro, who is the commissioner for health in the state said.
