Our attention has been drawn to a post by a Twitter handle @asthmafoundationng on Wednesday, March 25 2020.
The tweet alleges that there are over 34 cases of Corona Virus patients at the Julius Berger Medical Services clinic in Abuja. Though the account and tweet have been deleted in the meantime, we would like to state officially as follows;
- The tweet at issue is false and fake news;
- To date, there is no single case of clinical diagnoses of COVID-19 at the Julius Berger Medical Services clinic in Abuja or, indeed, at any of our medical facilities nationwide;
- The above fact has been confirmed by the National Centre for Disease Control.
Finally, we wish to state that the allegation is clearly and absolutely unfounded and is to be ignored for it is mischievous and intended to mislead the public.
