Lagos still having highest daily increase. Kano daily increase has reduced drastically ever since they have been on lockdown, then then their lockdown has been relaxed, should we be expecting more cases from Kano?

Kogi is yet to confirm another new case ever since the 2 cases recorded last week, of which the state governor insisted that his state is free of Covid-19. Who is right, NCDC or Yahata Bello?

Edo, Rivers, Kaduna, Kwara all recorded relatively high figures yesterday, 41, 33, 30, 23 was recorded respectively in these states just yesterday.

Below is the breakdown of Covid-19 cases in each state of the country, with only Cross River yet to discover any Covid-19 case in the state

Stay safe, Stay Healthy
