The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has confirmed 454 new cases of COVID-19 in the country, bringing the total number of cases to 27,564.
The NCDC made this known Friday night via its verified Twitter handle.
It listed 11,069 as having been discharged, while 628 have sadly died.
Coronavirus cases have reportedly surpassed 11 million worldwide, as the outbreak continues to surge in several countries including the United States, where case numbers tallied their largest single day total, topping 57,000.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) urged countries hit by serious coronavirus outbreaks to “wake up” to the realities on the ground instead of bickering, and to “take control” of the pandemic.
