576 new cases of Covid-19 have been announced in twenty-two Nigerian states on Tuesday, July 21, in what apparently brought the total confirmed infections to 37,801.
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) announced the new cases which seem to be one of the lowest daily figures in recent times.

Enugu state followed on the log with 28 new cases, with Oyo state and Taraba coming behind with 26 and 24 cases respectively.

The disease control agency also announced 3 new cases in Katsina, two cases in Imo. Both Kebbi and Borno closed the log for Tuesday with one case each.
Meanwhile, 15,677 people have been successfully discharged while 805 deaths have been unfortunately recorded since February when the first case was detected.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the governor of Abia state, Okezie Ikpeazu, has recovered from the deadly novel coronavirus disease, weeks after testing positive.
Ikpeazu is set to resume work on Wednesday, July 22, after his recovery. Sources whose names were not mentioned said Ikpeazu, his wife, Deaconess Nkechi and few aides attended an evening church service at the Seventh Day Adventist Church (SDA) Umuobikwa, Obingwa, the country home of the governor ahead of his planned resumption on Tuesday, July 21.
