From 290 cases recorded on Monday, COVID-19 cases in Nigeria rose to 423 on Tuesday, as the NCDC warned that the virus outbreak is still alive.

In a breakdown of today’s cases, Lagos re-established the grim order with 117 cases.

It was followed by the FCT Abuja with 40 cases.

The national confirmed cases, overall, are now 47,290 cases.

The death toll stands at 956, while the discharged are 33,609.

Wearing a mask, adhering to guidelines in public spaces and avoiding bars/clubs, gyms, cinemas and event centres.
