Nigeria records 600 new COVID-19 cases, bringing total confirmed cases to 35,454

Nigeria on Friday recorded 600 new Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections, bringing total confirmed cases to 35,454.

Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) said via its Twitter handle that out of the 35,454 confirmed cases, 14,633 have been treated and discharged while 772 deaths have been recorded across the 36 States of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The NCDC stated that the breakthrough of the 600 new cases reported from 20 States shows that Lagos has the highest number with 129 followed by FCT with 118 new infections.

Other include Oyo (87), Kano (55), Benue (42), Enugu (35), Kwara (28), Imo (16), Ogun (13), Kaduna (12), Ondo (12), Delta (11), Edo (11), Plateau (8), Nasarawa (6), Ekiti (6), Niger (6), Borno (4), Abia (4) and Gombe (3).

The health agency again warned Nigerians to protect themselves, stating that COVID-19 is primarily spread via respiratory droplets from infected people.

It explained that the virus can also be spread by people who do not have symptoms and do not know that they are infected.

NCDC restated that face masks can help to prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to other people.

It said that face shield alone might not protect people from the virus, advising Nigerians to always remember to wear face masks when in public places and to also maintain physical distance of two metres.

The NCDC said that Nigerians could reduce risks of COVID-19 in the workplace by conducting temperature checks, ensuring use of face masks, observe physical distancing and observing hand hygiene frequently.
