Nigeria is currently experiencing its worst stretch to date of COVID-19 with the recent surge in new infections. The total infections in the country has increased to over 80, 000.

On Wednesday, 1,133 new COVID-19 cases were found in Nigeria, the second-highest daily tally ever. This is coming 48 hours after Nigeria’s daily coronavirus infections fell for two consecutive days after over two weeks of high numbers across the country.

Health experts are raising serious concerns over the recent resurgence in infections which they believe could be more dangerous if citizens keep violating safety protocols. Last week alone, 5,176 infections were reported – the highest weekly figure so far.

With the 1,133 new cases, Nigeria’s total coronavirus cases rose sharply to 80,922. This is according to an update Wednesday night by the Nigeria Centre For Disease Control (NCDC).
