The NCDC said, on its website on Tuesday morning, that the country’s active COVID-19 cases were still over 1,300, and that the additional positive samples of the virus were recorded in four states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The agency noted that the new infections, which dropped from the 56 cases recorded a day earlier, increased the country’s tally to 167,909.
It, however, noted that the country had tested a total of over 2.3 million samples from its roughly 200 million population.
It added that a multi-sectoral national emergency operations centre (EOC), activated at Level 2, continued to coordinate the national response activities. (NAN)
