Lagos recorded the highest number of new cases with 82, followed by Oyo with 19, FCT with 18, Edo with 16, and Kaduna with 15.

Other states that recorded new cases are Enugu (9), Ogun (9), Kano (8), Kwara (8), Cross River (5), Ondo (5), Rivers (5), Ekiti (4), Imo (3), and Borno (2).

160 people who have recovered from COVID-19 were discharged across the country, according to the NCDC update, raising the total number of recoveries to 33,346.

Five new coronavirus-related deaths recorded on Monday raised the death toll to 950.

The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, warned Nigerians earlier on Monday that the death toll should be a wake-up call to take the virus a bit more seriously.

“The daily numbers released by the NCDC has shown that Nigeria is also slowly approaching 1,000 deaths, a very sad reality that should wake us all up immediately and fast,” he said.

Last week, the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, for the third time, extended the second phase of eased lockdown for another four weeks.

The PTF lamented that one of the most significant reasons for the extensions is the failure of Nigerians to adhere to safety measures put in place to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Ehanire said on Monday Nigerians must continue to protect themselves with non-pharmaceutical measures, such as regular hand-washing, social distancing, and wearing of face masks in public, until vaccines are available to eliminate the virus.
