COVID-19: Nigeria records highest daily death toll

After more than two months of relief, Nigeria on Monday recorded her highest fatality figure since the outbreak of the coronavirus infection in the country in February, 2020.

According to an update published by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on its verified Twitter handle on Monday night, Nigeria recorded 28 deaths in a day.

The new fatality figure toppled the previous record of 27 deaths recorded on January 30, 2021, and has now raised the country’s death toll to 2,099 in total.

Similarly, for the first time, Benue State, North-central Nigeria, has led in the daily infection tally with 178 cases out of the 203 reported across five states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The disease centre noted that Lagos, which usually habitually leads the chart, only recorded 10 cases on Monday while Ondo recorded six, and both Kaduna and the FCT recorded four cases each. Plateau State also makes the list with a single case.

With the new 203 infections and 28 deaths, experts fear a possible spike in the dangerous cases might already be here.
