Over 2,000 COVID-19 patients recover in Nigeria


The number of COVID-19 recoveries in Nigeria exceeded 2,000 on Friday.

This is just as 245 new cases were confirmed in 21 states and the federal capital territory (FCT).

In an announcement on its Twitter handle at 11:35pm on Friday, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) also confirmed 10 more deaths, bringing the total number of fatalities to 221 – the highest in the West African region.

However, 100 more COVID-19 patients were discharged and a total of 2,007 patients have now been discharged.

A total of 7,261 COVID-19 cases have now been confirmed in 34 states and the FCT.

The current figures show a marked upsurge in the number of new cases, as well as deaths and recoveries, between April and May 2020.

As of April 22, 2020, Nigeria had confirmed 873 COVID-19 cases in 25 states and the FCT, out of which 28 deaths and 197 recoveries were recorded.

However, according to Chikwe Ihekweazu, director-general of the NCDC, the agency is working on increasing its testing capacity, and as a result, the country will record more COVID-19 cases.

Meanwhile, Kogi and Cross River are yet to record any positive case of COVID-19.  (The Cable)
