About few minutes ago today Friday 10th April 2020, NCDC on their verified Twitter handle announced seventeen new cases of coronavirus also known as covid-19. The NCDC tweet made it public the new states involved and the numbers of confirmed cases. Remember that in our(IAMBEST TV) previous interview with the Local Government Chairman Suleja, Hon Abdullahi S. Maje, he said there were several contacts who were in isolation and waiting for results.
