The mortality rate of the COVID 19 virus is assuming a frightening dimension as Nigeria has recorded 10 new COVID-19 deaths in one day and 397 new infections.

In the past 10 days, there have been 52 recorded deaths from the coronavirus.

The NCDC in an update on its microsite Monday night said 397 new cases were found in 18 states over the previous 24 hours, indicating a sharp decrease from the 838 infections on Sunday.

With the latest figure, the country’s total infections is now 84, 811.

Since early December, there has been a spike in coronavirus cases in Nigeria.

Health experts believe the lowering of guard on safety and the weak enforcement of protocols especially in the country’s major airports in Abuja and Lagos could be responsible for the development, warning that the situation could get worse if citizens keep violating safety protocols.

Active cases in the country rose sharply from about 3,000 some weeks ago to over 11,000 due to a rise in new infections.

The global death toll now stands at more than 1.7 million
