On Friday, Nigeria recorded no new death from the COVID-19 virus which has already claimed 2,063 lives in the country.

The number of deaths recorded from the virus has drastically declined recently with only two deaths recorded in the last 17 days.

Also, in continuation of a steady run of low infection figures, the country recorded 55 new cases on Friday.

Friday’s tally brings the total number of infections in the West African nation to 165,110

This is according to an update published by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) late Friday night.

According to the NCDC, the 55 new cases were reported from eight states: Lagos-21, Yobe-19, Ogun-6, Akwa Ibom-3, Kaduna-2, Plateau-2, FCT-1 and Rivers-1.

A breakdown of the data shows that 60 persons were discharged on Friday after testing negative to the virus. This brings the total number of discharged persons after treatment to 155,101.

“Our discharges today includes 23 community recoveries in Yobe State managed in line with guidelines,” the infectious disease body said.

Meanwhile, a little over 10,000 infections are still active in the country.

Since the pandemic broke out in Nigeria in February 2020, the country has carried out 1,912,628 million tests, according to the NCDC.
