Nigeria on Thursday recorded 11 additional deaths from COVID-19, raising the total death toll in four days to 29.

The country also recorded 566 new cases in the last 24 hours, the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) said in an update on its Facebook page Thursday night.

According to the update, the new infection figure has raised Nigeria’s total infections to 176,577 while the fatality toll now stands at 2,178.

Nigeria recorded 29 fatalities between Monday and Thursday amid the ongoing nationwide strike by the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD.

The development, according to health experts, is putting more pressure on the country’s already overstretched health facilities.

The doctors’ strike entered its fifth day Thursday with its biting consequences taking a toll on Nigerians.

Meanwhile, the coronavirus active cases in Nigeria have jumped to 9,066 as of Thursday, according to NCDC data.
