Nigeria Reports Lowest COVID-19 Cases Since November, No New Death

 

Barely two weeks after the vaccination exercise began, the country recorded its lowest single-day figure in about four months and no new death was reported.



The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) – which manages disease outbreaks in the country – noted that 120 new cases were reported.



In a late-night tweet on Sunday, it noted that the new cases were reported in 13 states of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).



The last time Nigeria reported cases lower than Sunday’s figure was on November 29, 2020, and 82 fresh infections were confirmed.




 


Lagos reported the highest number of fresh infections – 32, and was followed by Rivers, Kaduna, and Bayelsa where 25, 20, and 13 cases were confirmed.



Others were Kano – seven, Jigawa – five, Borno – five, Abia – four, Oyo – three, Plateau – two, FCT – one, Ogun – one, Nasarawa – one, and Imo – one.


This brings the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 160,657, while 145,399 cases have been discharged and 2,013 deaths recorded.
