Nigeria’s COVID-19 deaths hit 1,100 on Monday as Enugu and Gombe lead in new recorded cases nationwide.

The nation posts 195 new cases on Monday, with Enugu, 51 cases; Gombe, 40 cases and Lagos, 39 cases making up the top three.

Plateau (23 cases), FCT (15 cases), Rivers (12 cases), Kaduna (8 cases), Ondo (3 cases), Bauchi (2 cases), Edo (1 case) and Ogun (1 case) make up the 10 States and FCT that record new cases on Monday.

With 195 infections on Monday, the total confirmed COVID-19 cases in Nigeria stand at 57,437 while 48,674 survivors have been discharged.

According the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, 480,874 tests had been carried out so far since the pandemic broke out in February.
