COVID-19 infections rise in Nigeria as new cases on Friday were recorded in three states with Lagos State topping the chart by reporting 175 out of the new 186 cases.

Two days after the confirmation of the ‘most transmissible’ delta variant of the coronavirus disease in Nigeria, cases are now consistently on the rise again in the country.

According to the statistics released by the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), the country reported 110 COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, 145 on Thursday, and on Friday, 186 cases were reported.

Public health experts are afraid that the delta variant, which was first identified in India in March, could trigger dramatic rises in cases and deaths in Nigeria.

The NCDC described the new development as worrisome. In an update on its Facebook page Friday night, the centre said Friday’s infection figure raised the total number of cases in the country to 168,442.
