The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) confirmed 339 new cases of Coronavirus as recorded cases surpasses 7000, TopNaija reports.

With the latest announcement, a total of 7,016 confirmed COVID-19 cases have now been recorded in 34 states and the federal capital territory (FCT).

The number discharged patients also increased to 1,907, while the total number of fatalities is now 211.

 

Nigeria has also crossed the 40,000 mark on testing with 40,043 sanples tested as of May 20, 2020.

Although a far cry from the NCDC’s target of two million tests within the next three months, the increase is still quite significant as just one month ago, less than 9,000 samples had been tested.

With the increase in the number of cases and the focus on COVID-19, Osagie Ehanire, minister of health, says the country is working towards ensuring that healthcare workers do not compromise on the provision of routine healthcare services outside the scope of COVID-19.
