The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on Thursday night announced 339 new cases of Covid-19 in eighteen states — arguably the highest in the last one week.

Lagos, the epicentre of the disease, unsurprisingly led the pack with whopping 139 cases followed by Kano and Oyo states sitting behind with 28 cases each.

Edo followed on the line with 25 cases, followed by Katsina (22), Jigawa (14). Yobe and Plateau shared 13 cases each, FCT (11), Gombe (8), Ogun (5). Bauchi and Nasarawa shared four cases each.
