It would be recalled that Nigeria on Wednesday recorded a total of 1728 coronavirus cases across the country with 51 deaths and 307 recoveries. Interestingly, Kogi state is the only state that has not recorded any case yet.
The coronavirus outbreak first hit some of the world’s largest economies. After originating in China, Italy and Spain were particularly hard hit. The U.S. now leads the world in the number of people who have contracted COVID-19 and those who have died from the disease.
