The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC on Wednesday, announced that 930 new confirmed covid-19 cases were recorded in Nigeria, taking the total tally to 75,062 confirmed cases and 1,200 deaths to date.

This represents the highest ever number of daily cases recorded since the outbreak. The last time Nigeria recorded a daily number of COVID cases in this region was on the 11th of December 2020, when 796 cases were recorded, followed by 790 cases recorded on 1st July 2020.

The 930 new cases were reported from 22 states, including Lagos (279), FCT (179), Plateau (62), Kaduna (54), Kano (52), Katsina (52), Imo (42), Jigawa (42), Rivers (38), Kwara (30), Nasarawa (19), Yobe (15), Ogun (13), Borno (10), Oyo (9), Niger (9), Ebonyi (6), Bauchi (6), Edo (5), Taraba (4), Sokoto (2) and Cross River (2).

In the past 16 days, Nigeria has recorded 7,507 new cases of the disease, which is 59.6% higher than the total 4,704 cases recorded in the month of November.

The continuous surge in the number of daily cases has prompted the federal government to begin reopening of isolation centres as the number of cases in admission has grown from 3,102 as of 30th December to 7,087 on Wednesday, representing over 128% increase in 16 days.

The discovery of a COVID-19 vaccine may have seen many take the pandemic as a mere sickness that can be easily treated, which has reduced the fear of disease nationwide.
