Increasing from previous 42 Monday, March 23, two new cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease have been confirmed in Nigeria, making the total number of cases in the country 46 as of 7.ooa.m. Wednesday, March 25.

Report indicates that the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) announced the latest development on the ravaging pandemic in Abuja, FCT, Wednesday morning.

Earlier, the NCDC disclosed that one of the fresh cases was confirmed in the FCT, whereas the other is actually Senator Bala Mohammed, Governor of Bauchi State.

“The cases have travel history to Germany and the UK,” according to the nation’s disease control agency.

An analysis of COVID-19 aggregate cases across the country is as follows: Lagos (29), Abuja, FCT (8), Ogun (3), Ekiti (1), Oyo (1), Edo (1), Bauchi (1) and Osun (1) respectively.
It was learnt that the Bauchi State Governor took the test Monday, after he had contact with the son of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, who is confirmed to have been infected with Coronavirus.

Mohammed was said to have returned to Bauchi from an official trip to Lagos after he met with Atiku’s son on the aircraft where both men shook hands and exchanged pleasantries.
Report further says that although he has not shown any symptoms of the disease, he has since gone into self-isolation to prevent further possible spread of the virus.

Meanwhile, Lagos State has been the worst hit in the country so far with 30 cases, and the state government has issued stricter measures, such as shutting down markets except those selling essential products, with effect from Thursday, March 26.

The state has also urged Lagosians to reduce the number of people in any gathering to 25 from initial maximum 50 individuals which the government had announced.
