The Director-general of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu had earlier  stated that Coronavirus will get to every state in Nigeria as he pointed out that some states are yet to send in enough samples for tests.

He averred that some states which are yet to record cases of COVID-19 are either negligent in testing and tracing, or actively hiding the disease within their territories.
