Meanwhile, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has corrected the number of confirmed cases of the virus infection in the country.
The correction is sequel to the agency’s announcement on Saturday night, to the effect that Nigeria recorded 49 new cases of COVID-19, raising the figure of total infections to 542.
However, the NCDC Sunday in a tweet said 48 new infections were recorded in the previous day while the total number of cases stood at 541.
It added that a total of 166 people have been discharged while 19 others have so far died since the outbreak of coronavirus in Nigeria.
NCDC explained that a new case was mistakenly reported in Ekiti, stating that it was wrong and caused by an error in the verification process.
