Following the announcement of 198 more cases by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, coronavirus cases in Nigeria have risen to 3145.
The new cases also came with a report of five deaths. This means Nigeria has now recorded 103 coronavirus fatalities in the last 44 days.
The first coronavirus-related death in the country was recorded on March 23, 2020, when Nigeria had only 36 confirmed cases in six states.
But currently, coronavirus has spread to 34 states and the Federal Capital Territory. Only Kogi and Cross River state are yet to record cases.
In its Wednesday report, the NCDC said the new cases were recorded in 12 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
