Over 1,000 COVID-19 related deaths have now been recorded in Nigeria.
On Sunday night, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), announced 322 new COVID-19 cases in the country.
The cases were from 18 states: Lagos (130), Bauchi (36), FCT (25), Edo (17), Bayelsa (14), Ogun (14), Oyo (14), Anambra (13), Kaduna (12), Ondo (11), Abia (10), Osun (6), Plateau (5), Kwara (5), Kano (4), Ebonyi (3), Sokoto (2) and Borno (1).
It brought the total to 52,227.
Of that number, 38,945 cases have been discharged and 1,002 deaths have been recorded.
The index case in Nigeria was recorded in February 2020, when an Italian man tested positive in Lagos state.
Since then, the number of infections have continued to grow steadily.
