Coronavirus 2020 News News Updates
Nigeria shoots past 3,000 cases of Covid-19, SE Zero

Both the South East and the South South were spared of new cases today as the country shot above 3,000 new cases of Covid-19 which is making a slow but steady advance into various states.

In a report released by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) a few minutes ago today 7 May 2020, Lagos and the North West States continue to post the worst results in terms of new infections.

Of the 103 new cases of Covid-19 confirmed today by the NCDC, Lagos (82) and Kano (30) continued to lead in new cases, followed in the top five by Zamfara (19), Sokoto (18), and Borno (10).

Today’s NCDC report of 195 new cases, collated from 13 States, shows a marginal increase of 47 new cases from the 148 that was reported yesterday. It is however also the second lowest figure in May.

NCDC said 53 cases fully recovered and were discharged while five died, the same number of deaths as yesterday.

Other States reported under-10 cases each and they include hitherto high-scoring FCT (9), Oyo (8), Kebbi and Gombe (5 each), Ogun (4), Katsina (3) and Kaduna and Adamawa (1 each).

Although the number of patients reported to have fully recovered and were discharged (53) is lower than yesterday’s figure (64), it is still a record high for the month of May.

Five new deaths were recorded, the same number as yesterday.


Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are readingNigerian Catholic Reporter than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Nigerian Catholic Reporter’s independent, engagement journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because of our strong desire to use this platform to redirect the warped thinking of perceived citizens of God’s kingdom towards biblical injunctions and God’s desired culture for His people.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as N500, you can support Nigerian Catholic Reporter.

Thank you.
