BY VICTOR OSOWOCHI, ABUJA – The rising numbers are not abating as Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on Wednesday night confirmed 790 new coronavirus infected patients, taking the latest countrywide tally to 26,484 cases.

It was a day highlighted by the positive tests by another Nigerian governor, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State and his wife as the South South State’s figure of 166 recorded cases presented the highest nationwide.

The 790 cases announced by the NCDC on its official twitter handle came in from 21 states with 13 new deaths reported in the last 24 hours.

“On the 1st of July 2020, 790 new confirmed cases and 13 deaths were recorded in Nigeria”, the NCDC said.

With controversy still trailing the claims by Cross River government as COVID-19 free state, official confirmation from the Centre indicated that; “Till date, 26484 cases have been confirmed, 10152 cases have been discharged and 603 deaths have been recorded in 35 states and the Federal Capital Territory.”

Again, Lagos state maintained its status as the virus’ epicentre in the country topping the number with 20 new cases and its tally of confirmed patients jumping to 10,630 cases.

NCDC’s breakdown of 790 new cases reported from 21 states showed thus: Delta – (166), Lagos – (120), Enugu – (66), FCT – (65), Edo – (60), Ogun – (43), Kano – (41), Kaduna – (39), Ondo – (33), and Rivers – (32).

Also listed on the Centre’s chart are: Bayelsa – (29), Katsina – (21), Imo – (20), Kwara – (18), Oyo – (11), Abia – (10), Benue – (6), Gombe – (4), Yobe – (2), Bauchi – (2), and Kebbi – (2)

So far, the total samples tested by the health agency currently stand at 138,462 with active cases reading 15,729 across the country.
