Nigeria Announces 53 More Deaths From COVID-19

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on Saturday night confirmed additional 53 deaths from the coronavirus pandemic, raising the nation’s total fatality from the disease to 2,361 as of Saturday night.

The new fatality figure, a confirmation of the biting consequences of the third wave of the pandemic, ranks the highest daily fatality figure in more than a year.

The disease centre, however, cautioned that the figure comprises a backlog of fatalities recorded in Lagos State, Nigeria’s coronavirus pandemic epicentre, between August 4 and 28.

It also added that the figure of discharged patients, which now stands at 178,047, also includes the backlog of statistics from the country’s commercial hub for the same period of August 4 to 28.
