Lagos shatters daily COVID-19 record again

Lagos State on Thursday posted 807 new cases of COVID-19, shattering its former record and setting a new one.

The Nigerian  Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, had reported 1,565 new COVID-19 cases in Nigeria, with Lagos reporting 807 cases.

The State broke the COVID-19 record in single day infections it set on January 5, 2021, when it reported 712 cases.

Thursday’s cases in Lagos are the highest recorded by any state in a single day since the pandemic broke out in February 2020.

Lagos posted more than half of the entire cases posted on Thursday, with Abuja coming a distant second with 236 cases.

However,  Nigeria’s 1,565 new cases of the virus on Thursday represented a little drop from the 1,664 cases posted on Wednesday, the highest so far by the nation since the onset of the pandemic.

With the new infections, total confirmed COVID-19 cases in Nigeria stood at 95,934 with 77,982 survivors discharged so far.

The nation reported six deaths on Thursday, taking the national death toll to 1,330.
