Briefing journalist in Lokoja on Monday at the COVID-19 palliatives distribution for communities of persons affected by leprosy and disabilities in Kogi State, the State Program officer, Leprosy Mission Nigeria, (LMN) Mrs Hannah Fashona explained that the new cases were recorded between January to November 2020.

Fashona who noted that the organization was determined towards ensuring that Nigeria is free from the disease added that the state referrer center located in Ochadamu, Eastern flank of Kogi State had succeeded in treating some patients affected with the disease.

According to her, it is on record that due to fear and lack of knowledge, over 3 million people across the world are living with undiagnosed leprosy and every day, the disease causes more damage to their health, livelihood and future.

The LMN program officer added that more than 600 people are diagnosed of leprosy in the world daily, adding that over 50 of these are children.

She explained further that Leprosy Mission is embarking on daily research to achieve zero leprosy in the world.

Fashona, however, faulted the claim of the Federal Government that Nigeria have attained zero elimination campaign of leprosy in the country.
