Daily deaths from COVID-19 in Nigeria seem to be resurging after almost two weeks of low figures as seven people died from the disease on Sunday.

The seven deaths on Sunday raised the fatalities in the country to 2,048 in total, according to a tweet published by Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on Sunday night.

In continuation of a steady run of low infection figures, the country recorded 104 new cases under 24-hours, one of the lowest daily figures this year.

The new figure which is slightly higher than the 101 cases recorded a day earlier raised the total number of infections in the West African nation to 162,593.

The new cases were reported from 12 states – Lagos (48), Enugu (16), Kwara (8), Kaduna (6), Plateau (5), Kano (5), Rivers (4), FCT(4), Ogun (4), Edo (2), Ekiti (1) and Katsina (1).

Lagos had the highest figure with 48 new cases on Sunday followed by Enugu and Kwara with 16 and 8 new cases respectively.

 

 

As of 10am on Monday, Nigeria has a total of 162,593 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 150,308 discharged, following the recovery of additional 103 people.

While the country has tested a total of 1,767,694 samples for COVID-19, 10,237 cases are still active.

 

 

 

Since the pandemic broke out in Nigeria in February last year, the country has carried out over 1.7 million tests.

Nigeria has vaccinated over 500,000 people with Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccines the country received almost four million doses of in early March.
