The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has yesterday recorded fresh 463 cases of the deadly coronavirus being the lowest in the last four days as the records show less than 500 in a single day. There were expressions of hope from some section of the society as this mark a decrease in the daily toll of the cases being recorded. Though, ten more persons were reported to have died as the result of the deadly COVID-19 complications pushing the fatality figure to now 754 in the country.
As at yesterday evening, the total infected figure in the country’s toll was put at 33,616 while 13,792 persons have been treated and discharged from the isolation centres. The health agency in its official tweet disclosed the new cases were reported from about 17 states from across the country which includes; Lagos-128, Kwara-92, Enugu-39, Delta-33, Edo-29, Plateau-28, Kaduna-23, Oyo-15, Ogun-14, Osun-14, FCT-12, Rivers-9, Ondo-9, Abia-8, Bayelsa-5, Ekiti-3, Borno-2.
Though a lot of efforts are on ground to tackle the menace, there are fears that the disease may go contagious and overwhelm the populace and the healthcare facilities especially now that health workers in the frontline and the government are on logger-head for the failure of the Lagos state government being the epicentre to pay health workers salaries.
The Federal Government had on 30th June lifted the interstate travel and domestic flights.
The current nationwide curfew, 10 pm to 4 am and restriction on mass gathering and sporting activities still remain under check and compulsory use of face mask.
Meanwhile, the government is still monitoring the event as it unfolds.
