Just as some are thinking that the nation is finally getting out of the coronavirus pandemic, an update on new infection cases by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has shown that it is far from over.
On the centre’s Twitter handle on Sunday, November 8, a new upsurge of 300 cases was reported. The figures were spread across five states and the country’s capital. Out of them all, Lagos led with 255 cases while Abuja came second with 27.
Oyo, Kaduna, Ondo, and Kano have ten, five, two and one respectively putting the overall detected cases at 64,090.
Out of that number, 59,910 have been discharged and 1,154 deaths recorded. The tweet gathered hundreds of quoted replies as many Nigerians reacted to the new high numbers which is a far cry from Saturday's 59 cases.

Below are some of the reactions:

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the Lagos state government issued a strong warning to residents that the persistent disregard of the COVID-19 pandemic could bring about a second wave of the virus in the state.
The authority, therefore, told residents to keep practising all set out measures against the outbreak to prevent Lagos from going into another lockdown as experienced months ago.
The warning was given through the commissioner for health, Professor Akin Abayomi, on Tuesday, November 3, who said that the resurgence of coronavirus could set back the progress the state had made.
