This was revealed in a late-night tweet by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in its latest update on the disease.

It noted that 284 new cases of coronavirus were reported from 12 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The disease has spread to almost all states in the country, with Lagos being the worst-hit and followed by Kano State.

Only Cross River and Kogi States have yet to report any case of COVID-19 since the outbreak of the disease in the country.

Of the new cases, Lagos has 199 infections, Rivers reported 26, Oyo recorded 19, and eight new cases were reported in the FCT.

Other states with new cases include Borno – eight, Plateau – seven, Jigawa – six, Kano – five, Abia – two, Ekiti – one, Delta – one, Kwara – one, and Taraba – one.
