It came as a source of relief to Nigerians that some of the persons, about six (6) who recorded positive before and are quarantined will be discharged soon because there are recovering from the deadly covid-19 pandemic. The story though is not coming to its end soon with the present report from NCDC.
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has announced that there are 14 new cases of coronavirus in the country, having 12 in Lagos, 1 in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and 1 in Bauchi.
According to a tweet from NCDC, “Of the 14, 6 were detected on a vessel, 3 are returning travellers & 2 are close contacts of confirmed cases.
“As at 7:35 pm 26th March, there are 65 confirmed, cases 3 discharged, 1 death.
