Although the death rate remained high, infections have reduced.

On Thursday, Nigeria recorded 287 new COVID-19 infections in 18 states to continue a steady run reduced figured.

Thursday’s rate, which is lower than the 394 infections on Wednesday, raised the total number of diseases in the country to 159,933.

Nigeria reported an average of 1,000 infections daily between December and January. Infection figures have relatively reduced, with daily cases hovering between 195 and 709 in the past two weeks.
