As Nigeria gradually reopens its economy amid the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic, the country has reported 298 more infections – the third-lowest since June 8.

On August 4, the country reported 288 COVID-19 infections and just one week later, it recorded 290 new cases.

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) announced the latest figure in a late-night tweet on Sunday.

It explained that the new infections were reported from 15 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Plateau reported the highest number of new cases – 108, followed by Kaduna with 49 while Lagos – the nation’s epicentre of the disease, recorded 47.

Others are Ogun – 18, Osun – 17, FCT – 15, Ondo – 14, Edo – eight, Oyo – six, Akwa Ibom – four, Cross River – four, Borno – three, Ekiti – two, while Bauchi, Kano, and Rivers have one more case each.
