He said, “These cases were all imported from states with a significant number of COVID-19 positive persons, such as Lagos, Ogun and Kano, as well as Abuja.
“The major worry now is that those 37 cases may even be the tip of the iceberg; many might have slipped in without our knowledge. Such persons would have been mingling with other members of society thereby spreading the coronavirus.”
