NCDC says portal for pre-registering of travellers arriving, departing Nigeria now working, as Plateau State records 183 of 296 new infections

The Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) says that the Nigeria International Travel Portal where travellers arriving to and departing from Nigeria were  required to log on to pre-register, nitp.ncdc.gov.ng, has come alive.

This is just as NCDC said that Plateau State on Tuesday recorded 183 of the 296 new infections of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic reported across the  country.

The NCDC said via its official Twitter handle the 296 new infections brought the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 55,456.

According to the NCDC, 103 people who have been treated and recovered from the infection were discharged on Tuesday, raising the total number of recoveries to 43,334.

The NCDC said that six new fatalities also raised the death toll to 1,067 in the country.

The health agency data shows that apart from Plateau State leading with 183 new infections, Lagos had 33, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) had 25.

Other States were Ogun – 16, Oyo, – 7, Ekiti – 6, Kwara and Ondo, 5 each,  Anambra, Imo and Nasarawa, 3 each, Rivers, Gombe and Edo, 2 each and Akwa Ibom, 1.

On the Nigeria International Travel Portal, NCDC asked travellers arriving to and departing from Nigeria should “read COVID-19 Provisional Quarantine Protocol for Travellers via covid19.ncdc.gov.ng/media/files/CO,” apologising to everyone that had challenges with the platform.

“We are working across several ministries and agencies, with banks and laboratories, across Federal and State governments to make the system work for all.

“We will communicate further. However, our  Public Health Advisory to Nigerians on COVID-19 is updated regularly to reflect the latest information on COVID-19 including: Travel advice, advice for health workers and advice for businesses,” it said.
