Nigeria has recorded 501 fresh cases of the novel coronavirus pandemic as Lagos state and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) maintain their leads among other states of the federation.
Legit.ng reports that the news was broken on Saturday, June 13, by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
Lagos state tops the list of the cases with 195 while it was followed by the FCT which recorded 50. Kano state and Kaduna states recorded 42 and 27 cases respectively.
Edo state also has its share of 26 while Oyo and Imo states have 26 and 21 respectively.
Here is the full list as released by the NCDC via its official Twitter account:
The NCDC says that the total numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Nigeria now 15682. A total number of 5101 cases have been discharged while 407 deaths have been recorded.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that NCDC on Friday, June 12, reported that there are 627 new cases of coronavirus in Nigeria.
It was reported that Lagos topped the chart with 229 cases while the FCT follows with 65 infections, Abia 54, Borno 42.
Oyo had its own share with 35 cases while Rivers and Edo came 6th and 7th respectively with 28 cases each. Gombe, on the other hand, had 27 cases while Ogun had 21.
In another report, it was reported that since COVID-19 does not have any known cure or vaccine yet, many Nigerians and others across the world asked how patients are being managed at isolation centres.
This was said to have fueled many speculations especially as some COVID-19 survivors claimed they were given malaria drug while some said they were not given any drug at all.
To address the information gap, the director-general of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu, listed five key ways COVID-19 patients are managed at isolation centres.
