Nigeria records lowest COVID-19 cases in 4 Months

Only seven days to the rescheduled date for the resumption of international flights at the country’s airports, Nigeria has recorded its least single-day instances of coronavirus (COVID-19) in four months.

In a late-night tweet on Sunday, the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) declared that 138 additional infections were accounted for over the last 24 hours.

It noticed that the new cases were accounted for from 13 states of the Federation and Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Plateau – which is the new epicentre of COVID-19 in Nigeria – announced 55 additional diseases while Lagos, Ebonyi, and Oyo recorded 15, 11, and 11 cases, separately.

Others are Abia – eight, Anambra – seven, FCT – seven, Rivers – seven, Kaduna – six, Ondo – five, Kwara – three, Bauchi – one, Benue – one, and Edo – one.

This brings the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 53,865, while the latest figure is 112 lower than the number of infections reported in the previous day.

While the nation is witnessing relatively decreasing numbers of infections, it has continued to see more recoveries.

Data from the NCDC’s latest update on the pandemic revealed that 199 more infected patients have been successfully treated and discharged from various isolation centres in the country.

As of 11:28pm on Sunday, Nigeria’s recovery figure stood at 41,513 representing over 77.60 per cent of the total infections.

This leaves 11,330 cases active while two more people have lost the battle to COVID-19, raising the death toll from the disease to 1,013.
