COVID-19 Update: Nigeria gradually crushing curve as new cases fall to 143

Nigeria is now finally crushing the COVID-19 curve as new cases continue to decrease.

On Monday, August 31, 2020, Nigeria recorded a lowly 143 new cases of COVID-19.

Equally important, the new figure is a far cry from the worrisome days of over 600 infections when the country was in the thick of community transmission of the pandemic. Meanwhile, the new cases were confirmed by Nigeria’s disease fighting agency – the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC). As a matter of fact, the development has seen Nigeria’s COVID-19 case file rise to 54,008 total infections.

Specifically, the NCDC made this known via its verified handle on the micro-blogging site, Twitter late on Monday.

Also, the health agency disclosed that the 143 cases were confirmed from 17 states; as well as Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), thereby taking the number of confirmed cases to 54,008.

In addition, it revealed that Plateau again had the highest number of infections of 35; while Kaduna had 21 with Lagos and FCT recording 19 and 13 cases respectively.

Others include;
Ebonyi (9), Adamawa (7), Enugu (7),
Katsina (7), Edo (6), Kwara (5),
Osun (3), Anambra (2), Kano (2);
Niger (2), Ogun (2), Benue (1),
Borno (1)
and Sokoto (1).

In what will go down as cheery news, no new fatality was recorded as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This was equally confirmed by the NCDC. The health agency said that till date, 54,008 cases had been confirmed; 41,638 cases discharged and 1,013 deaths recorded in 36 states and FCT.

Let’s continue to take responsibility; 
Wear a face mask in public, 
practice hand/respiratory hygiene 
And maintain physical distance.
