The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control says Nigeria has registered seven Coronavirus infections, the lowest daily figure recorded since April 15, 2020 when the country registered 11 cases.
The public health agency disclosed that the seven additional cases were reported from only three states, namely: Lagos 3, Kwara 3, and Rivers 1.
The update was posted on NCDC website on Monday morning.
According to the agency, the new infections had raised the country’s total infection tally to 167,066.
“Today’s report includes 31 community recoveries from Lagos state managed in line with guidelines
“5 states with 0 cases reported, namely: Plateau, Nasarawa, Kano, Imo, and Sokoto,” it said.
The NCDC noted that Sunday case became the tenth consecutive day that the country recorded zero fatality from the disease.
It also noted that at least 3.8 million deaths have been registered globally due to the pandemic with the country taking a share of more than 2,000 deaths so far.
While some countries such as the United States, Brazil, and India are witnessing a resurgence of the virus, Nigeria has witnessed a massive reduction in the rate of infection from an average of more than 1,000 daily cases between December 2020 and February 2021, to less than 100 in the past month.
The NCDC added that a multi-sectoral national emergency operations centre (EOC), activated at Level 2, continues to coordinate the national response activities.
