The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control on Sunday disclosed that it has recorded 30 COVID-19 new cases in Lagos and two other states.
This is just as it stated that the nation has not registered any death arising from complication of coronavirus in the past 24 hours.
The NCDC confirmed the update in its latest post via its official website on Sunday.
It identified the affected states as Lagos, which reported 26 fresh infections, Rivers 3 and Kwara 1.
According to the NCDC, while the case count had continued to creep down throughout the week, it is getting closer to dropping below 30.
The agency also disclosed that one person has been discharged on Sunday after recovering from COVID-19, bringing the total number of discharged cases to 156,558.
It added that a multi-sectoral national Emergency Operations Centre (EOC), activated at Level 2, continued to coordinate the national response activities.
NAN reported that the country has conducted over two million tests since the first case relating to the disease was announced on Feb. 27, 2020.
Meanwhile, the agency has urged Nigerians to adhere to all non-pharmaceutical preventive measures of COVID-19, adding that it will help to curb the spread in Nigeria.
“Wash your hands with soap under running water.
“Wear your face mask properly. Maintain a distance of two meters from the person next to you,” it advised.
