Covid-19: Nigeria confirms 17 new cases, total rises to 305
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control NCDC has confirmed 17 new cases of coronavirus. The new cases were recorded in eight different states in the country.
This was disclosed on Friday 10th April 2020 in a statement released by NCDC.
Out of the new 17 cases, 8 cases were recorded in Lagos, two in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), three in Katsina, and a case in Niger, Ondo and Anambra.
The recent confirmed cases have brought the total number of confirmed cases to 305 across the country with 58 recoveries and 7 recorded deaths.
As the country recorded 163 cases, Lagos State has the highest number of confirmed cases while Ogun state has reported 7 confirmed cases so far.
NCDC said in a statement that it had initially added three cases to the number of cases confirmed in Lagos, but the cases were later transferred to Ogun State because the infected persons are from there.
“Three cases previously included as Lagos State cases have been transferred to Ogun State. The three cases live in Satellite Town in Ogun,” NCDC said in a statement.
