The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control on Friday reported 627 new cases of COVID-19, putting the nation’s total number of covid-19 infections to 15,181.
Earlier on Friday, Lagos announced it has discharged 90 COVID-19 patients after they fully recovered.
But there are concerns that the virus spread is getting worse across the country as the NCDC reported 600-plus new cases for two consecutive days, a first.
Meanwhile, authorities have warned that the number of cases will rise as testing capacity increases.
Nigeria is currently in the second phase of easing its lockdown restrictions, with worship centres expected to restart in more states.
According to the NCDC, the country has now confirmed at least 15,181 cases of the novel coronavirus with 399 deaths and 4,891 recovered patients.
